Classic Film: "Laura," with a book sale and signing, "Hollywood Enigma: Dana Andrews," part of the Mysteries of Life film series

Date(s): September 13, 2012
Time(s): 7 p.m.
Location: Annenberg Presidential Conference Center's Hagler Auditorium

(1944, 88 minutes, Black and White) Directed by Otto Preminger. Laura Hunt (Gene Tierney) has been murdered, and as New York City Detective Mark McPherson (Dana Andrews) investigates, he finds that everyone seems to be in love with her – and he, too, gradually falls under her spell. But things aren't always what they seem. Otto Preminger's classic mystery received four Academy Award nominations, including a nod for Best Director, and won the Oscar for Best Cinematography. Also starring Clifton Webb, Vincent Price and Judith Anderson.

This month, we are partnering with Sam Houston State University to bring in biography author Carl Rollyson. Following the movie, we will have a book sale and signing of his newest book, "Hollywood Enigma: Dana Andrews."

The George Bush Presidential Library and Museum and the George Bush Presidential Library Foundation present the Classic Film Series free of charge and invite anyone in the community to attend. Beverages are provided courtesy of Bryan Coca Cola Bottling Company and popcorn is available at no cost. Refreshments are available in the lobby in the hour preceding the start of each movie. All films are shown in the Annenberg Presidential Conference Center's Hagler Auditorium, unless otherwise noted, and a speaker introduces each film. Parking is free and plentiful.
