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

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.

Novel/Movie Series: Burt Lancaster

In September, we will be starting the Fall St. Simons Public Library Novel/Movie Series.  This series is about Burt Lancaster.  The three movies we will be showing are "The Killers," "The Rose Tattoo," and "Elmer Gantry."

If you would like to watch what is probably Lancaster's best performance and an excellent movie, get a copy of "Judgment at Nuremberg."  You can order it from Netflix and perhaps get it at your local library. 

Be Kind to Ferals - Nicki D. and Cool Mustard

WThese are our two formerly feral kittens, Nicki D. and Cool Mustard.  We started feeding their mother and then adopted her and her four kittens.  They are a loving family.  Cats usually don't get raised with others in their families and so these guys make a unique group.  They are crazy about each other - play together, sleep together and as you can see from this photo, pal around together.  Be kind.  Please be kind to ferals.  They are full of love and full of fun.
