Please join us on October 11, 7 PM, for an enjoyable evening watching the satirical comedy/drama, Hail the Conquering Hero. Woodrow’s hay fever leads to his quick discharge from service in WWII, but he dreads returning home having lost his chance to distinguish himself. On a lark, some helpful fellow Marines spread word that he’s a hero, and the story hilariously balloons out of control. Discussion to follow the movie. Directed by Preston Sturges, 1944, US, 101 minutes. Shown with English subtitles.This year we have a new sound system that includes a much-improved set of speakers and a new amp/mixer console (thanks to Bud O’Connor). There is still time to support the film program by purchasing a $20 subscription for this year’s entire series; without the subscription, it is $7 at door.
