Film Classics in 35mm! Written by Paddy Chayefsky

THE GODDESS

United States | 1958 | John Cromwell

THE GODDESS film still

Either Marilyn Monroe or Ava Gardner was Paddy Chayefsky’s inspiration for the screen “goddess” at the center of his first original movie script. Kim Stanley, an esteemed Actors Studio alum who appeared in only five theatrical features during her illustrious career (and earned Oscar nominations for two of them), made her film debut in the movie. She plays a poor Southern girl who becomes a motion picture sexpot adored by millions—while remaining deeply unhappy and insecure in her personal life. Music by Virgil Thomson. “Just as he later ridiculed the inanities of American TV in Network, writer Paddy Chayefsky took the Hollywood star system to task in this equally savage satire.” –Time Out Film Guide. 35mm. 105 min.

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