HELL HATH NO FURY LIKE GLORIA GRAHAME

December at the Trylon

Nominated for two Oscars, Gloria Grahame won Best Supporting Actress in 1953. Still, she was often relegated lesser roles and was rarely given her due. Yet as the films in this series show, no matter which character she plays or how long she’s on screen, Grahame rivets our attention.

IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE

(1946, DCP, 130m) dir Frank Capra w/James Stewart, Donna Reed. Though it’s a Christmastime staple, Capra’s film carries a strong undertone of uneasiness about the selfless choices that small-town banker George Bailey (Stewart) makes and the community he’s a part of. It also transmits a rebuke of capitalistic greed that is as stinging today as it ever was. Grahame shines as the local fast girl, Violet. MON 3:00 5:30 8:00 TUES 7:00 9:30
