Program Description

Event Details

Meet online to discuss the 1952 film, Sudden Fear, starring Joan Crawford, Jack Palance and Gloria Grahame. Directed by David Miller and based on the novel of the same name written by Edna Sherry. This film is a highlight of Crawford's 50s characters -- strong women who must navigate difficult and dangerous circumstances to emerge even more empowered. Crawford is buttressed in her efforts by Jack Palance and Gloria Grahame, who turn in strange and wonderful performances. This film is free to watch on the streaming service Kanopy which you can subscribe to using your library card.
