Please join us for The Bad and The Beautiful, the fifth film in season 6 of Lincoln Theater’s Classic Film Club celebrating the Legends & Lovers of Hollywood. We are pleased to be joined at each screening by film historian and CFC host, Jeannie MacDonald, for a pre-film introduction and post-screening talkback.

Kirk Douglas and Lana Turner deliver a searing peek inside Hollywood in a drama reminiscent of Sunset Blvd. and All About Eve. Director Vincente Minnelli (Gigi, An American in Paris) captures the rise and fall of an unscrupulous producer (Douglas) who ruthlessly climbs the ladder of screen success, using and abusing an alcoholic star (Turner), B-movie director (Barry Sullivan), and Southern writer (Dick Powell) along the way. Winner of five Academy Awards, including Best Supporting Actress (Gloria Grahame).

Running Time: 1 hour, 58 minutes
