Curated by Richard Pena, Programming Director, Film Society of Lincoln Center. The Film Society of Lincoln Center joins forces with Guild Hall to present screenings of several of Judy Garland's best-loved films. Four seasons in the life of The Smiths pass in day-to-day joy and tribulation--from summer 1903 up to the opening of the 1904 World's Fair. But teen romances, dead dolls, and a dream existence (in a Minnelli-crafted, turn of the century home) are threatened when Mr. Smith announces the family's imminent move from St. Louis to New York City. The timeless Hugh Martin/Ralph Blane score includes "The Trolley Song," "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas," and "The Boy Next Door." A justly celebrated cast features the amazing Margaret O'Brien, Mary Astor, Tom Drake, Marjorie Main, Leon Ames, Lucille Bremer, Harry Davenport, Joan Carroll, and June Lockhart. Talkback to follow with Marian Masone, Associate Program Director at the Film Society of Lincoln Center, where she serves on the Selection Committees for New Directors/New Films and the Human Rights Watch Film Festival. She is also the curator for the Film Society's monthly documentary program "The Art of the Real."
