Film Classics in 35mm! Written by Paddy Chayefsky

THE AMERICANIZATION OF EMILY

United States | 1964 | Arthur Hiller

THE AMERICANIZATION OF EMILY film still

James Garner, Julie Andrews, and Melvyn Douglas star in this sardonic anti-war black comedy adapted by Paddy Chayefsky from William Bradford Huie’s novel. Set in WWII London shortly before D-Day, the film tells of a cowardly, fun-loving naval officer who falls for a young British war widow shortly before he is selected by his commanding officer for the dubious honor of (probably) becoming the first American to die during the Normandy invasion. Julie Andrews has said that this b&w film, released between Mary Poppins and The Sound of Music, is her favorite of her movies. “[Chayefsky and Hiller’s] Hospital without the gore.” –Time Out Film Guide. 35mm. 115 min.

Special admission $14; members, CIA/CSU I.D. holders, age 25 & under $11; no passes.
