Roman Holiday PosterMarch 17 at 2 pm in the Library’s Bard Room

‘Roman Holiday’ (1953) stars Gregory Peck as a reporter and Audrey Hepburn as a royal princess frustrated by her tightly scheduled life. When Princess Ann (Hepburn) sets out to see secretly Rome on her own, a sedative she took kicks in and she falls asleep on a park bench. The American reporter (Peck) who finds her does not recognize her. ‘Roman Holiday’ was selected in 1999 for preservation in the United States National Film Registry. Audrey Hepburn won an Academy Award for Best Actress.


Some Like It Hot PosterApril 14 at 2 pm in the Library’s Bard Room

‘Some Like It Hot’ (1959) is a landmark comedy starring screen legends Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis, and Jack Lemmon. In 1929 two musicians (Curtis and Lemon) are forced to dress in drag to escape from mafia gangsters whom they witnessed commit a crime inspired by the Saint Valentine’s Day Massacre. They join up with an all-female jazz band and hop a train bound for sunny Florida. On the way they meet Sugar (Marilyn Monroe)! The final scene is considered the funniest film ending of all time! The film has a Rotten Tomatoes approval rating of 95% and in 1989 became one of the first 25 inducted into the United States National Film Registry.
