LOC Theater - LA TRAVIATA (Universal Classics, 1982):

Thursday, November 6, 2014

Time: 7:30 p.m.
Location: Packard Campus
Address: 19053 Mt. Pony Rd., Culpeper, VA, 22701
Organized by: Library of Congress
Description: Legendary tenor Plácido Domingo and world famous soprano Teresa Stratas star in director Franco Zeffirelli's lushly cinematic version of Verdi's beloved opera La Traviata, a story of doomed love in 1840s Paris. Oscar nominated for Best Art Direction and Best Costumes, the extraordinary score is performed by the Metropolitan Opera orchestra. In his review in the New York Times, Vincent Canby called the film a "triumph" and "dazzling" and wrote La Traviata benefits from Mr. Zeffirelli's talents as a designer as much as from his gifts as a director. The physical production is lush without being fussy. Nor is it ever overwhelming. This possibly is because at key moments we are always aware of details that, however realistic, remind us that what we are witnessing is not life but a grand theatrical experience. It's not to be missed." 109 min.**All Packard Campus programs are free and open to the public, but children 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult.

LOC Theatre: HERE'S EDIE: THE BEST OF EDIE ADAMS ON TELEVISION (1960s):

Thursday, November 13, 2014

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: Edie Adams (1927-2008) may be best known as the Muriel Cigar girl, for her movie roles in "The Apartment" and "It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World," or for being the widow of actor and comedian Ernie Kovacs. Her work as creator/producer/star of her own variety series on ABC or as a pioneer television conservationist is often overlooked. Adams' tireless efforts going back to the 1960s to locate, acquire and save the television programs of her late husband won Kovacs a new generation of fans in the 1970s, and two recent DVD box sets have done even more to boost his reputation as "television's original genius." This program of highlights from Adams' successful and inventive variety series "Here's Edie" (ABC, 1962-64) will be presented by Ben Model, archivist for the Kovacs/Adams collection. The 21 episodes of the show were released on a DVD box set last year, thanks to the work of Adams' son Josh Mills, and had been unseen since they first aired. Look for guest stars Sammy Davis, Jr., Terry-Thomas,Rowan & Martin and Soupy Sales among others in the songs and sketches that will be presented. Black & white, 120 minutes***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: 1939 DOUBLE FEATURE:

Saturday, November 15, 2014

Time: 7:30 PM
Location: Library of Congress Packard Campus on Mt. Pony
Address: 19053 Mt. Pony Rd., Culpeper, VA, 22701
Description: IN NAME ONLY (RKO, 1939) In this romantic melodrama, Carole Lombard plays widow Julie Eden, who meets and falls in love with unhappily married Alec Walker (Cary Grant). Alecs manipulative wife, Maida (Kay Francis), who married him only for his wealth and family prestige, refuses to give Alec a divorce. She convinces everyone -- even Alec's parents -- that she is the victimized one and that Alec is an irresponsible philanderer. The usually dour New York Times critic Bosley Crowther wrote, The story, while obvious, is thoroughly convincing, thanks to the natural attack which director John Cromwell has taken upon it and to some delightfully pleasing dialogue&. And a generally excellent cast contribute in making this one of the most adult and enjoyable pictures of the season. Black & white, 94 minutes ***BACHELOR MOTHER (RKO, 1939) Ginger Rogers shines in one of her best comic roles as Polly Parrish, a salesgirl at a large New York City department store. The unattached Polly leads a quiet life until she surprisingly finds herself the caretaker of an abandoned infant, while everyone believes that she is the actual mother. New York Times critic Frank Nugent wrote, Although the theme of mistaken maternity is one of the venerables of farce, this treatment of itwritten by Norman Krasna, directed by Garson Kanin and played by so many pleasant peopleis too logical, too human, too humorous for outright farce. It is comedy, simple if not always pure, and we must call it one of the season's gayest shows. This sparkling farce which also stars David Niven and Charles Coburn became one of RKO's biggest box-office champions, in that championship year of 1939. Black & white, 82 minutes***All Packard Campus programs are free and open to the public, but children 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult.
