Written on the Wind (1956)

This is another one in the NC Museum of Art's winter film series. The film will be introduced by a film historian.

Directed by Douglas Sirk. Rock Hudson, Lauren Bacall, Robert Stack, Dorothy Malone. (99 min.)

The museum's website says: "An overheated midcentury soaper, Sirk’s film is both deliciously trashy and intentionally subversive. Two childhood pals reach across the class divide and wrangle with insecurity, alcohol, sex addiction, and money. Set in the Texas oil fields, it was rumored to be a thinly veiled take on the scandalous death of an R. J. Reynolds tobacco heir. 'A perverse and wickedly funny melodrama' (Roger Ebert)."

    Got mine but like Dave said, they do often sell out. Also, there is an event in the west building before the movie, Art in the Evening, with music and wine.

    just bought my ticket online -- there's only a 70 cent service charge. i once went to one of these indoor films and couldn't get in because it sold out, so now i always get tickets online
