Friday Feature Film Club Discussion

Tuesday, May 197:00—8:00 PMHome ActivityBillerica Public Library15 Concord Road, Billerica, MA, 01821

Join us on Tuesday, May 19th at 7 pm for our weekly film discussion about our Friday Feature Film! This week's movie is His Girl Friday. In this undeniable gem of Hollywood's golden age, Walter, a hard-boiled newspaper editor, discovers that his ex-wife and former employee, Hildy, is set to marry a wet-blanket insurance salesman. Walter, certain that this is the wrong move for a strong-willed and ambitious woman such as Hildy, decides to sabotage her marital plans by enticing her with one last story--the execution of a convicted murderer.
A classic of the Screwball Rom-Com genre, His Girl Friday delivers the quick wit - and quicker dialogue - that only a pair like Hollywood legends Cary Grant and Rosalind Russel can! You can access this film using Kanopy, a free streaming resource available with your library card. For details on how to use Kanopy, check out a video tutorial available on the library's website here. Reach out to Lizzie at lmeier@billericalibrary.org with any questions.
