Grassmarket Community Project ends their Classic Hollywood Season 2019 on 11th November with a screening of Kirk Douglas in his breakthrough role as troubled fighter “Midge” Kelly.
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
Dir: Mark Robson PG, US, Sports Drama, 87mins
Hollywood Legend Kirk Douglas is 103 in December. So it seems ideal to end are Classic Hollywood Season 2019 with a screening of Douglas’ breakthrough role as troubled fighter “Midge” Kelly. Mark Robson was responsible for the dark and uncompromising 1943 occult thriller The Seventh Victim—one of your programmer’s favourite films. Here he brings some of that noirish atmosphere to writer Ring Lardner’s tale of a boxer nailed to the board by his own demons and the corruption of the sport itself.
Next year we’ll be looking at titles from 1940, 1950 and 1960, as our Classic Hollywood Season returns. So if you have a favourite title from any of those years, contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll do our best to screen it.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Champion are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
