Location: Bartos Screening Room

Screening on June 5 has been canceled.

Dir. Sam Wood. 1942, 127 mins. 35mm. With Ann Sheridan, Robert Cummings, Ronald Reagan. Nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture, this haunting, elegiac melodrama set in a fictitious Midwestern town was the film that made Ronald Reagan a movie star. He gives a fine performance as Drake McHugh, a rich heir-turned-amputee who loses his fortune to embezzlement. “Where’s the rest of me?” became Reagan’s signature line and the title of his first autobiography. Seen as overly brooding and melancholy at the time of its release, Kings Row is one of Wood’s best films, with atmospheric, Oscar-nominated cinematography by James Wong Howe.
