UCLA Film & Television Archive and the Hugh M. Hefner Classic American Film Program present “Blonde Crazy: Joan Blondell”
Opening Night (1977), directed by John Cassavetes
Gena Rowlands plays an actress who struggles with, resists and eventually overthrows the text written by Joan Blondell’s veteran playwright in a tour de force dramatic examination of age, gender, celebrity and identity. The consummate studio professional, Blondell struggled with but ultimately rose to the occasion of director John Cassavetes’ considerably looser methods to deliver an astonishing late career performance.
SCR: John Cassavetes. CAST: Gena Rowlands, John Cassavetes, Joan Blondell
35mm, b/w, 140 min.
FREE Admission for all UCLA students with valid I.D.
