East of Eden (1955) with intro by Ann Glenn

Bow Tie Cinema at the Harbour Center in Annapolis continues its ongoing weekend "Cine Classic" Film Series with the 1955 drama, East of Eden.  Starring James Dean, Raymond Massey and Julie Harris, and directed by Elia Kazan, this poignant story of a troubled son trying to win the love of his disapproving father was based on the popular John Steinbeck novel.

Of the three films in which James Dean played the male lead, this is the only one to have been released during his lifetime and the only one Dean personally viewed in its entirety.  Dean also received a Oscar nomination for Best Actor.

Here's the trailer:

Ann's commentary begins at 10:30 and includes little known/fascinating facts about the film's stars, director and production. The film begins at 11:00 a.m.  Audience comments and questions are encouraged.

Admission is $5.50 ($4.50 with a Bow Tie free Criterion Club card which can be obtained online at Bow Tie's website or at the theater.)
