Hey everyone, for "Cult-Movie Night" in January, I'll be showing two versions of the classic fairy tale, "Beauty and the Beast". First is Jean Cocteau's version which some critics call the best representation of a fairy tale on film ever produced. Josette Day stars as a beautiful young woman who takes her father's place as the prisoner of a mysterious beast (Jean Marais) who wishes to marry her. Disney's 1991 version is the first animated feature ever nominated for a Best Picture Acadamy Award. The film is directed by Gary Trousdale and Kirk Wise, and features the voice talents of Paige O' Hare, Robby Benson, and Angela Lansbury.
Feel free to bring a drink or a snack to share. We'll order some pizzas between the films. Hope to see you there!
