SDSM& T FILM SERIES OFFERS THE CAINE MUTINY THIS SUNDAY
Starring Humphrey Bogart as the paranoid Captain Queeg, The Caine Mutiny will be shown this Sunday evening as part of the SDSM& T Devereaux Library’s 1998 Film Series. Nominated for seven Academy Awards including Best Picture, this 1954 color movie adaptation of Herman Wouk’s Pulitzer- Prize winning novel how a crew deals with the possible insanity of their new captain. The film will be shown at 6: 00 p. m., Sunday, February 15, at the Elks Theatre.
Humphrey Bogart’s portrayal of the paranoid, unpopular, by- the- book Captain Queeg was one of Bogart’s last roles and is considered to be one of his greatest performances. Bogart received a Best Actor nomination for this film. Van Johnson and Robert Francis portray two junior naval officers who mutiny against their unpopular commanding officer after they become convinced he has deliberately placed the ship in danger during a full scale typhoon. They face a court- martial for their actions, the outcome of which hinges on Captain Queeg’s testimony. The movie also stars E. G. Marshall, Tom Tully, Jose Ferrer, Fred MacMurray, Lee Marvin and Claude Akins.
For individuals who do not have film series booklets, tickets will be sold at the door for $ 4 each on a space available basis. For additional information, call the Devereaux Library at 394- 1262 or the Elks Theatre at 341- 4149.
