Where you’ll find Movies you love with Stars you know.
To Kill A Mockingbird
is the 1963 three-time Oscar-winning blockbuster drama directed by Robert Mulligan based on Harper Lee’s 1960 Pulitzer Prize-winning novel starring Gregory Peck, Mary Badham and a very young Robert Duvall. It tells the story of kids coming of age in the 1930s while bigotry in all forms is in the forefront and reaches its first denouement in a climactic courtroom scene, which all others – real and imagined – have ever since been measured against.
The Snows of Kilimanjaro
is the 1952 two-time Oscar-winning epic drama directed by Henry King and starring Gregory Peck, Susan Hayward and Ava Gardner based on the Ernest Hemingway novel of the same name, in which adventure writer Harry Street reflects on his life, as he lies dying from an infection while on safari in the shadow of nearby Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa. Have your tissues and popcorn handy for this movie – you’ll need both!
A Farewell to Arms
is the 1932 two-time Oscar-winning drama directed by Frank Borzage starring Gary Cooper, Helen Hayes and Adolphe Menjou based on Ernest Hemingway’s novel of the same name, telling the story of an American ambulance driver who falls in love with an English nurse in Italy during the horrors of World War I. “There may be no tomorrow.”
Diabolique – Simone Signoret and Vera Clouzot
is the 1955 Henri-Georges Clouzot thriller starring Paul Meurisse, Vera Clouzot and Simone Signoret where the cruel and abusive headmaster of a boarding school becomes the target of a murder plot hatched by the unlikely duo of his wife and his mistress. Diabolique won the Louis Delluc Prize and the award for best foreign film at the New York Film Critics Circle Awards in 1955, and remains in Time Magazine’s Top 25 Horror films.
