Wednesday Movie Club in June 2016

June, 08 – Wednesday Movie Club @ DniproWOA – Tribute to Marilyn.
The WOA's Movie Club offered big-screening of "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes".
It is a 1953 film adaptation of the 1949 stage musical about two singers who travel to Paris, pursued by a private detective hired by the disapproving father of one's fiancé to keep an eye on her, as well as a rich, enamored old man and many other doting admirers. Director: Howard Hawks. Starring: Jane Russell, Marilyn Monroe and others.
Monroe's character is the gold-digging Lorelei Lee for which the film is often remembered. Monroe's rendition of the song "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend" and her pink dress are considered iconic. The performance has inspired homages by Madonna, Geri Halliwell, Kylie Minogue, Nicole Kidman, Anna Nicole Smith, Christina Aguilera, and James Franco.
Number of participants – 10 persons.

All About Eve is a 1950 American drama film written and directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz, and produced by Darryl F. Zanuck. It was based on the 1946 short story "The Wisdom of Eve" by Mary Orr, although screen credit was not given for it.
The film stars Bette Davis as Margo Channing, a highly regarded but aging Broadway star. Anne Baxter plays Eve Harrington, an ambitious young fan who insinuates herself into Channing's life, ultimately threatening Channing's career and her personal relationships. George Sanders, Celeste Holm, Hugh Marlowe, Barbara Bates, Gary Merrill, and Thelma Ritter also appear, and the film provided one of Marilyn Monroe's earliest important roles.
Praised by critics at the time of its release, All About Eve received 14 Academy Awards nominations (a feat unmatched until the 1997 film Titanic) and won six, including Best Picture. All About Eve is the only film in Oscar history to receive four female acting nominations (Davis and Baxter as Best Actress, Holm and Ritter as Best Supporting Actress). All About Eve was selected in 1990 for preservation in the United States National Film Registry and was among the first 50 films to be registered. All About Eve appeared at #16 on AFI's 1998 list of the 100 best American films.
Number of participants – 7 persons.
