More about this event:
'Only Angels Have Wings' (1939), directed by Howard Hawks: Jean Arthur and her character, Bonnie Lee, hold their own superbly in this thrilling story of masculine honor. As recently-arrived showgirl, Annie falls for Geoff Carter (Cary Grant), the cynical director of an air courier operation in the Andes. Arthur’s Bonnie reveals an emotional maturation that rivals the film’s aeronautic exploits and its face-offs between the men whose emotional baggage leads to danger and even tragedy.
