RiverRun Retro, presented by Nelson Mullins, welcomes filmmaker and actress Monika Henreid for a program about her father: actor, director and Hollywood Blacklist survivor Paul Henreid. Widely remembered for his role as raconteur Victor Laszlo in the iconic Casablanca, Henreid appeared in a wide range of films across a variety of genres including Now, Voyager, Goodbye Mr. Chips, Devotion, The Spanish Main, Of Human Bondage, Night Train to Munich, In Our Time, Song of Love, Deception, Rope of Sand and many others. After defending free speech during the McCarthy era, he was semi-Blacklisted until Alfred Hitchcock hired him to direct 28 episodes of Alfred Hitchcock Presents, launching a prolific chapter in Henreid’s career as a director for film and television. His last film appearance as an actor was in Exorcist II: The Heretic.
On Saturday, November 4, Henreid will participate in a program at RED Cinemas in Greensboro where she will discuss her father’s career with RiverRun Executive Director Rob Davis. The program begins at 5:00 pm and will include a screening of the film noir classic Hollow Triumph (also released as both The Scar and The Man Who Murdered Himself). Tickets are $12 and available online at redcinemas.com or at the theater box office.
