LOC Theater: BOB HOPE ON TELEVISION (1953 -1979):

Thursday, May 7, 2015

Time: 7:30 pm
Location: Packard Campus
Address: 19053 Mt. Pony Rd., Culpeper, VA, 22701
Organized by: Library of Congress
Description: Bob Hope, who entertainment historian and critic Leonard Maltin declared may be the most popular entertainer in the history of Western civilization, was arguably the nation's best-loved topical humorist during the twentieth century. Hopes road took him through vaudeville, the Broadway stage, radio, motion pictures, the USO, and television; he truly was Americas Entertainer of the Century, as the subtitle to Richard Zoglins acclaimed new biography proclaims. This program, the first of three this weekend devoted to Hope (including an evening with author Zoglin), focuses on significant landmark broadcasts in Hopes television career. Included are excerpts from The World of Bob Hope, a 1961 intimate profile, called by one critic a remarkable piece of work  a serious, uncompromising study of a man who, incidentally, makes his living telling jokes; Hopes first televised appearance as host of the Academy Awards from 1953; his 1958 special from Moscow, for which he received the coveted George Foster Peabody Award for his Outstanding Contribution to International Understanding; his groundbreaking three-hour special from China two decades later; and, of course, his Christmas shows entertaining troops in Vietnam, for which parents of soldiers movingly thanked him for bringing them glimpses of their sons far away. Black & white and color, 120 min. ***All Packard Campus Theater programs are free and open to the public, but children 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult. Reservations are no longer taken and all seating is on a "first come, first serve" basis.

LOC Theater - HOPE: ENTERTAINER OF THE CENTURY WITH AUTHOR RICHARD ZOGLIN:

Friday, May 8, 2015

Time: 7:30 p.m.
Location: Library of Congress Packard Campus on Mt. Pony
Address: 19053 Mt. Pony Rd., Culpeper, VA, 22701
Description: Richard Zoglin is the author of Hope: Entertainer of the Century. Released in November 2014, it is the first definitive biography of Bob Hope. In his exhaustively researched and critically acclaimed book, Zoglin makes the persuasive case that Hope was the most important entertainer of the 20th century. He was the only show-business figure to achieve top-rated success in every major mass-entertainment medium of the century  vaudeville, Broadway, movies, radio, television and live concerts. He virtually invented stand-up comedy in the form we know it today. His tours to entertain U.S. troops and patriotic radio broadcasts, along with his all-American, brash-but-cowardly movie character, helped to ease the nation's jitters during the stressful days of World War II. Zoglin will discuss Hopes life and career and be on hand for a Q&A after a screening of The Road to Morocco (1942), the third of seven of the Road comedies that Hope made with Bing Crosby. The film was added to the National Film Registry in 1996. 120 min. ***All Packard Campus programs are free and open to the public, but children 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult.

LOC Theater: MY FAVORITE BLONDE (Paramount, 1942):

Saturday, May 9, 2015

Time: 7:30 pm
Location: Library of Congress Packard Campus on Mt. Pony
Address: 19053 Mt. Pony Rd., Culpeper, VA, 22701
Organized by: Library of Congress
Description: Bob Hope stars as a vaudevillian with a penguin act who gets involved with Nazi agents and a beautiful blonde British Secret Service Agent (Madeleine Carroll) in this breezy comedy. Per Hope biographer Richard Zoglin, My Favorite Blonde puts a comic twist on a familiar Hitchcock formula: the average Joe drawn unwittingly into life-or-death intrigue. Some of the scenes consciously echo The 39 Steps, the 1935 Hitchcock film in which Carroll raced around the Scottish countryside with Robert Donat, trying to foil an enemy spy ring. Hope does an amusing parody of their stiff-upper-lipped derring-do. Hes a quavering, reluctant hero who wants no part of the adventure but is too moonstruck by Madeleine to avoid it. This was the first of six Bob Hope vehicles directed by Sidney Lanfield. Also on the program is the 1934 short musical comedy film Paree, Paree starring Bob Hope. Black & white, 100 min. ***All Packard Campus Theater programs are free and open to the public, but children 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult. Reservations are no longer taken and all seating is on a "first come, first serve" basis.

LOC Theater - BATTLING BUTLER (MGM, 1926):

Friday, May 15, 2015

Time: 7:30 pm
Location: Library of Congress Packard Campus on Mt. Pony
Address: 19053 Mt. Pony Rd., Culpeper, VA, 22701
Description: Buster Keaton stars as a pampered rich kid who pretends to be a champion prize fighter to win the love of a girl. The gag backfires when he is forced into the ring with a boxer known as the "Alabama Murderer." Keaton also directed the comedy which was based on a British stage musical of the same name. As always in his pictures, Keaton did all of the stunts and rough stuff himself which resulted in suspending production for a few days so he could recover from a particularly bad fall on his head. Sally O'Neil stands out as the sprightly girl he tries to impress. A silent comedy short or two will also be on the program. Ben Model will provide live musical accompaniment. Black & white, 77 min ***All Packard Campus programs are free and open to the public, but children 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult.

LOC Theater: THE ABSENT-MINDED PROFESSOR (Disney/Buena Vista, 1961):

Saturday, May 16, 2015

Time: 7:30 pm
Location: Library of Congress Packard Campus on Mt. Pony
Address: 19053 Mt. Pony Rd., Culpeper, VA, 22701
Organized by: Library of Congress
Description: Disney's live-action films moved from historical adventures and fantasies to slapstick situation comedies following the surprising success of The Shaggy Dog in 1959. Two of the stars of that film, Fred MacMurray and Tommy Kirk, were recruited two years later for this like-minded romp which proved to be an even bigger box-office bonanza for Disney. MacMurray plays Professor Ned Brainard, a science teacher at small-town Medfield College. His experiments lead to a new discovery: a gooey substance which defies gravity that he dubs "Flubber." While Brainard attempts to interest the government in uses for Flubber by putting on impressive demonstrations such as making his Model T car fly, a corrupt businessman tries to steal the invention to make a personal fortune. Robert Stevenson directed the film which was nominated for three Oscars: Best Cinematography, Best Art Direction, and Best Special Effects. Also on the program  a Disney cartoon or two. Black & white, 92 min. ***All Packard Campus Theater programs are free and open to the public, but children 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult.

LOC Theater: FAR FROM HEAVEN (Focus Features, 2002):

Thursday, May 21, 2015

Time: 7:30 PM
Location: Library of Congress Packard Campus Theater on Mt. Pony
Address: 19053 Mt. Pony Rd., Culpeper, VA, 22701
Organized by: Library of Congress
Description: A 1950s suburban homemaker (Julianne Moore) is ostracized because of her friendship with an African-American man (Dennis Haysbert) while coping with her deeply closeted gay husband (Dennis Quaid) in Todd Haynes homage to Douglas Sirks All That Heaven Allows (1955) and Rainer Werner Fassbinders Ali: Fear Eats the Soul (1974). Haynes liberally appropriated the look and feel of All That Heaven Allows - especially its color palette, lighting, and musicwhile employing Alis more formally disruptive editing style. The result is a sensitively felt melodrama that invokes the genres tropes in a completely sincere and unironic manner, making explicit what Douglas Sirk could only hint at in his movies. Color, 107 min. ***All Packard Campus Theater programs are free and open to the public, but children 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult.

LOC Theater: THE PARALLAX VIEW (Paramount, 1974, *R-rated ):

Friday, May 29, 2015

Time: 7:30 PM
Location: Library of Congress Packard Campus on Mt. Pony
Address: 19053 Mt. Pony Rd., Culpeper, VA, 22701
Organized by: Library of Congress
Description: Arguably the definitive conspiracy thriller of the seventies, Alan J. Pakula's The Parallax View bears an unmistakable resemblance to the Kennedy assassination. Based on a novel by Loren Singer, Warren Beatty plays a reporter who uncovers a deadly plot behind a political assassination. The adaptation was not a hit when it was released, but its reputation and stature has only grown in the years since. Pakula described the film as "sort of an American myth based on some things that have happened, some fantasies we may have had of what might have happened, and a lot of fears a lot of us have had." William Daniels, Paula Prentiss and Hume Cronyn are featured in the cast. * No one under the age of 17 will be admitted without a parent or guardian. Color, 102 min. ***All Packard Campus Theater programs are free and open to the public, but children 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult.

LOC Theater: ALI: FEAR EATS THE SOUL (New Yorker Films, 1974):

Saturday, May 30, 2015

Time: 7:30 PM
Location: Library of Congress Packard Campus on Mt. Pony
Address: 19053 Mt. Pony Rd., Culpeper, VA, 22701
Description: An elderly German woman falls in love with a much younger Moroccan immigrant in New German Cinema wunderkind Rainer Werner Fassbinders powerful remake of Douglas Sirks masterful melodrama All That Heaven Allows. Like Sirk, Fassbinder used melodrama as a means of cultural commentary, and never to such effect as in Ali. Emmi (Brigitte Mira) and Ali (El Hedi ben Salem) are drawn to each other out of a sense of isolation, horrifying Emmis family and friends who react with barely concealed loathing. Although the film stands as pointed critique of mid-70s West German society, the film has a universal and timeless quality, truly one of the highlights of Fassbinders astonishingly prolific (40 features, two TV miniseries, plus many theatrical productions and acting gigs before his death at age 37) career. In German and Arabic with English subtitles. Color, 94 min.***All Packard Campus programs are free and open to the public, but children 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult.
