Online Novel/Movie Series

The St. Simons Island Library does a quarterly Novel/Movie series.  Because of the coronavirus, we are doing our Spring series online.

 Hitchcock: Before and After Hollywood..

Novel/Movie Series, St. Simons Island

The St. Simons Library does a quarterly Novel/Movie Series where we show a classic film and discuss the novel it was based on.

This quarter we were doing "Hitchcock: Before and After Hollywood."

The films were
The 39 Steps
Dial M for Murder

Since the corona virus has confined most of us, we are going to be doing the discussion online.  Come join us, any comments or suggestions are welcome.

You can read Joseph Conrad's novel, The Secret Agent, online or listen to it on audible.

Hitchcock: Before and AFter Hollywood.

The cinematography in “Sabotage” is delicious.  Because of this, look around before deciding which online version to watch.  Some of the versions are blurry and you won’t fully appreciate the astounding black-and-white art work of Bernard Knowles’ work.
Knowles (1900-1975) was a British director, producer, cinematographer and screenwriter.  He, like Hitchcock, was a part of the very earliest cinema in Britain.  Knowles started his career as a newspaper photographer and during the 1920s worked as a photographer for the Detroit News.

Moveable Feast Restaurant

It's nicely decorated with art work, books, cushions.  It's comfortable and the food is really good.  There is a real lack of innovation in and around St. Simons Island in terms of food.  But, this restaurant is an exception.
We started off with a French Sauvignon Blanc, bread and a herb butter.

Burt Lancaster: Novel/Movie Series

Come join us for a discussion of the 1927 novel "Elmer Gantry" and a screening of the 1960 film with Burt Lancaster and Jean Simmons.

St. Simons Library Novel/Movie Series: Burt Lancaster

"The Killers" was Burt Lancaster's first movie. But, he wasn't the studio's first choice. Warner Brothers wouldn't lend out actor Wayne Morris for the film. Other actors considered for the part include: Van Heflin, Jon Hall, Sonny Tufts, and Edmond O'Brien, who was instead cast in the role of the insurance investigator.

Come join us for a lively discussion of "The Killers."

September 16, and a showing of the film, September 18

2:00 PM, Free
Supported by the St. Simons Literary Guild

Come join us for the film and go for a drink with a group of classic movie lovers afterward.

This Fall's series is on Burt Lancaster, featuring the films: "The Killers" (Lancaster's first film), "The Rose Tattoo" and "Elmer Gantry."

Fun discussions and great movies.  What could be better.

the Misfits (1961)

The Misfits (1961)
The first movie in our new series is one left over from the Clark Gable Series, the Misfits, starring Clark Gable and directed by John Huston.
Gable felt that it was a compliment that he was offered the part of Gay (the male lead) since he considered it an “intellectual” script, a western but not a western and unlike other parts he had played.
Arthur Miller who wrote the screen play, was not at first taken with the idea of casting Gable, but after he met and talked with Gable, he decided that Gable was Gay, or Gay was Gable.
