Public Domain Xinema presents...A FAREWELL TO ARMS
Tuesday, Sep 25
Ernest Hemingway's classic work makes a triumphant return to Public Domain Xinema, as we enjoy one of the greatest adaptations of one of his most famous novels, A Farewell to Arms. This 1932 version, directed by Frank Borzage, and starring the powerhouse cast Gary Cooper, Helen Hayes and the immortal Adolphe Menjou, is maybe the best filmed version of any of Hemingway's works. Join us for this monumental classic, which we'll enjoy with newsreels and cartoons from 1932 and a historical intro from series curator, Ygal Kaufman. As always, this Public Domain Xinema screening is a donation based admission, so bring something or bring nothing, just bring yourself!
A Farewell to Arms
An English nurse and an American soldier on the Italian front during World War I fall in love, but the horrors surrounding them test their romance to the limit.
