Chicago Film Club: Screening of “Scarlet Street” with discussion afterward
May 4 @ 6:45 pm - 8:45 pm
Scarlet Street (1945) reunited Edward G. Robinson and Joan Bennett (The Woman in the Window) in a new noir tale. Robinson is a shy, lonely man stuck in a loveless marriage to a woman who demeans him on a daily basis, comparing him constantly to her late first husband. When Robinson sees Bennett being ruffed up by her boyfriend (Dan Duryea), he steps in to save her. Little did Robinson realize that his good deed would lead to a series of events that would lead to his ruin.
Chicago Film Club
If you love classic movies, this is the club for you. You’ll have fun learning about the classical Hollywood period of filmmaking as well as interacting with other classic movie fans. Each movie will be introduced, providing important background information, to make the movie watching experience as enjoyable as possible. Q&A and discussion time after each film viewing will give everyone a chance to contribute their impressions and opinions. It will be like going to film school, but with no tests, quizzes, or finals!
