Tribute to Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds

Jan 21 — Jan 22, 2017

Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher, the mother-daughter duo that was so deeply intertwined in life, died a day apart in late December. These deeply saddening deaths may have felt like the inevitable ending of a Hollywood melodrama, but the shock and sense of loss felt by public was real. These were two beloved stars, captivating millions in classic movies from Singin’ in the Rain to Star Wars. This tribute features Reynolds in one of her most acclaimed starring roles, in The Unsinkable Molly Brown. With Fisher, the focus is on her brilliance as a writer, with the excellent adaptation of her book Postcards from the Edge.
