Barrington movie matinee series salutes Henry Fonda


Join librarian and film enthusiast Doug Swiszcz for Fond of Fonda: A Movie Lecture Series Saluting Henry Fonda, for the next four Wednesdays. The series continues this Wednesday, March 13, with "The Lady Eve" (1941). A delightful screwball comedy directed by Preston Sturges, it casts Fonda as Charles Pike, the gullible heir to his family’s ale brewing fortune who falls—literally—for card sharp Jean Harrington (Barbara Stanwyck). Her plan is to bilk him out of his money by seducing him, but she ends up falling in love with him. The following Fonda films will be shown the remaining weeks: "My Darling Clementine" (1946), "12 Angry Men" (1957), and "Clarence Darrow." (1974)

WHERE: Barrington Public Library, 281 County Road, Barrington

WHEN: 2 p.m., Wednesdays, March 6-April 3

COST: Free
