1942. USA. Dir: Michael Curtiz. With Ingrid Bergman. 102 min. 35mm print.
An old-fashioned "night at the movies," complete with vintage trailers, newsreel, and cartoon.
Of all the bars in all the towns in all the world, Bergman had to walk into Bogart’s, with a French resistance leader on her arm and the Nazis on their tail. Beyond the gorgeous cinematography and the quotable screenplay, this film tells an intimate story about the struggle of moving on from lost love that remains stirring 75 years after release. Panel to follow, featuring Jeanine Basinger, Founder of the Wesleyan Cinema Archives, and Noah Isenberg, Professor of Culture and Media at Eugene Lang College of Liberal Arts.
