As part of a film series dedicated to director William Wyler, the Olimpo presents “Jezebel,” a 1938 classic starring Bette Davis and Henry Fonda. The movie begins at 8. Free admission.
The film tells the story of a headstrong young Southerner during the antebellum period. Her brash actions cost her the man she loves. The film has been overshadowed in memory by “Gone With the Wind,” but stands up today as a solid drama. Davis won an Academy Award as “Best Actress,” and Fay Bainter won for “Best Supporting Actress.”
Filmed at the height of Davis’ career, Hollywood historian Jeanine Basinger calls “Jezebel” the quintessential American woman’s film.
