      EVENT DETAILS
      "Waterloo Bridge" (MGM, 1940)

      Star-crossed lovers ballerina Myra Lester (Vivien Leigh) and soldier Capt. Roy Cronin (Robert Taylor) meet on the eve of World War I but are separated before romance can fully flower. Told mainly in flashback, “Waterloo Bridge” is a tearjerker of the highest order and demonstrates that Mervyn LeRoy - who also directed “Little Caesar” - was among Hollywood’s most accomplished craftsmen. “Waterloo Bridge” had been filmed before in 1931, by “Frankenstein” director James Whale at Universal, with Mae Clarke giving the best performance of her career as Myra. It would be remade as “Gaby” (1956), starring Leslie Caron. The film was Oscar-nominated for Best Cinematography for Joseph Ruttenberg and Best Music, Original Score for Herbert Stothart. Digital. 108 minutes.

      Programs are free and open to the public, but children 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult. Seating at the screenings is on a first-come, first-served basis unless otherwise noted. Short films may be shown before some features.

      For general Packard Campus Theater information, call (540) 827-1079 ext. 79994 or (202) 707-9994.
