From page to stage to three screen versions, this immortal musical from Jerome Kern and Oscar Hammerstein II, based on Edna Ferber’s novel, has certainly stood the test of time. This third film adaptation is a lavish Technicolor production in the MGM musical style and was a huge box office success. Among the stars are two North Carolina natives, Ava Gardner and Winston-Salem’s own Kathryn Grayson, along with Howard Keel, William Warfield, and Marge and Gower Champion. Don’t miss the opportunity to see this event in it’s 35mm film print format!
