Description: Preston Sturges was not a good student, didnt like to read, never went to college, and yet by the time he was in his 40s, he had changed the course of Hollywood history. Between 1940 and 1944 Preston Sturges wrote and directed a streak of hits populated with zany characters, witty dialogue and a subversive sense of humor that somehow got past the Hollywood Production Code. At each session, we will be watching one of those hit films. Ms DiVerdi, a classic film columnist, will talk about the films, the times and the larger-than-life personality and talent of Preston Sturges. Please call 508-835-3711 for specific titles and to register.
