Three women receive a letter from the town flirt informing them that she has run off with one of their husbands, without revealing which one. Writer/director Mankiewicz scored two "Oscars" for this riveting, delicious piece of Americana chock full of comic effervescence in the year prior to his triumphant "All About Eve".

This time of narrative sound films from the 1920s to the 1950s was a world of atmosphere, fantasy and glamour – an age of screen personalities that were idolised by millions. It was a period of a gargantuan volume of production in America and Britain, when cinema was one of the main entertainment mediums.

We aim to foster an appreciation of this era of filmmaking in a unique atmosphere that is relaxed and fun! Our presentations are of the highest possible standard utilising professional standard projection equipment.

Majority of our screening prints kindly supplied by the National Film and Sound Archive, Canberra.
