Thursday, February 2, 2017 at 7:00 p.m.
Hanesbrands Theatre, 209 N. Spruce St., Winston-Salem, NC 27101
RiverRun International Film Festival’s RiverRun Retro presents a film screening of Stella Dallas, starring Barbara Stanwyck, and a discussion with Stanwyck’s biographer, Victoria Wilson, followed by a book signing of her biography, A Life of Barbara Stanwyck Steel True: 1907 – 1940.
The 1937 version of Stella Dallas is the second of three screen versions of the story based on a novel by Olive Higgins Prouty. Stanwyck received her first Academy Award for Best Actress for playing the title role. At the time of its release, Variety magazine called it “A tear-jerker of ‘A’ ranking.” Stanwyck received numerous accolades for her performance, including from the New York Times, whose reviewer noted, “Miss Stanwyck’s portrayal is as courageous as it is fine.”
Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the conversation with Victoria Wilson will begin at 7:00 p.m., followed by the screening of Stella Dallas. BookMarks will have copies of Wilson’s book available for purchase prior to the event and during the reception and book signing following the screening.
