Event Description

Starring Ava Gardner, this fantasy comedy and musical follows the capers of a statue of Venus from a store window display brought to life. The window dresser in charge of the display, having kissed the statue on a whim, accidentally brings her to life, setting off a chain of increasingly wild escapades, casting a love spell on all who cross her path. As reviewed by Variety, Gardner’s performance is “bountifully physical and alluring, delivered with a delightfully sly instinct for comedy.”

The film will begin promptly at 1:30 on the second floor of the library. Seating is first come, first served.
