Vintage Classics – Films in our Studio Theatre
In one of Hollywood’s best films, an ageing silent film queen refuses to accept that her stardom has ended. She hires a young screenwriter to help set up her movie comeback. The screenwriter believes he can manipulate her, but he soon finds out he is wrong. The screenwriter’s ambivalence about their relationship and her unwillingness to let go leads to a situation of violence, madness and death.
The winner of three Academy Awards including Best Screenplay.
