The Movie Club will have a Zoom meeting on Wednesday, June 17, at 1:30 pm. We plan to discuss Funny Girl and the 1967 version of The Producers. Funny Girl tells the story of a “vibrant and beautiful young Fanny Brice (Barbra Streisand) [who] starts out as a bit player on the New York City vaudeville stage, but works her way up to stardom on Broadway. Valued for her vocal and comedic talents by the renowned theater impresario Florenz Ziegfeld (Walter Pidgeon), Fanny thrives, but her relationship with her suave, imprisoned businessman husband, Nick Arnstein (Omar Sharif), is another story.” The Producers tells the story of “down and out producer Max Bialystock (Zero Mostel), who was once the toast of Broadway, [and now] trades sexual favors with old ladies for cash contributions. Max’s new accountant, Leo Bloom (Gene Wilder), offhandedly muses that if Max found investors for a new production that turned into a flop, he could legally keep all the extra money. The duo begins to put together the worst play possible, titled ‘Springtime for Hitler,’ with a terrible director and a hippie-freak star.” Both movies were shown on the WNET network of PBS as part of Reel 13 Classics. You may be able to see them through a PBS playback system (such as Thirteen Passport) or other streaming service. If you wish to be added to the email list for future events, please contact Margaret Mitchell at margaret06824@yahoo.com or 255-9094.
