Andrew’s Video Vault at the Rotunda | 2013 Series

A Double Life (1947, 104 min)
In George Cukor’s drama, written by Ruth “Maude” Gordon and Garson “Born Yesterday” Kanin, Ronald Colman is an actor who is strongly influenced by the characters he plays—when he agrees to play ‘Othello’, the role overwhelms him with the Moor’s murderous jealousy.

Life Begins at Eight-Thirty (1942, 85 min)
Ida Lupino lives in a small apartment with her father Monty Woolley who is a celebrated actor done in by drink.  When things seem at their nadir, Woolley lands the apt role of “King Lear”.

This program is made possible through the generous support of the Cinema Studies Program and The Rotunda at the University of Pennsylvania, and ARMcinema25. Special thanks: Andrew Repasky McElhinney, Curator of the Film Series.
