ALTON — The Gilman Library will be hosting an Oscar Night at the movies on Friday, August 2 at 7 p.m.
The featured presentation is "Double Indemnity." Produced in 1944, the film stars Fred MacMurray and Barbara Stanwyck. Walter Neff, an insurance agent, and Phyllis Dietrichson, a greedy blonde bombshell, plot to bump off Phyllis' husband and collect the premiums. Leaving behind the standard New York setting of lower class crime, this definitive film-noir of the 40's takes place in a California of shady streets, supermarkets and stucco houses.
The film is black and white and not rated. Admission is free. Refreshments will be served. Children under the age of 10 must be accompanied by an adult.
