Grab the tissues and join us for a mini-retrospective from the maestro of 1950s melodrama, director Douglas Sirk. Shot in blazing technicolor, featuring stellar performances (Rock Hudson! Jane Wyman! Lauren Bacall! Lana Turner!) and simmering emotions, these lush and sumptuous films are not to be missed.
WRITTEN ON THE WIND
Bathed in lurid Technicolor, melodrama maestro Douglas Sirk’s Written on the Wind is the stylishly debauched tale of a Texas oil magnate brought down by the excesses of his spoiled offspring. Features an all-star quartet that includes Robert Stack as a pistol-packin’ alcoholic playboy; Lauren Bacall as his long-suffering wife; Rock Hudson as his earthy best friend; and Dorothy Malone (who won a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her performance) as his nymphomaniac sister.
