The Big Read Maltese Mondays - I Wake Up Screaming

Monday, April 11, 2016 at 7:00pm to 9:00pm

Film Row Cinema 1104 S Wabash Ave, Chicago IL 60605

The Big Read Film Noir festival, Maltese Mondays, continues with a screening of I Wake Up Screaming starring Betty Grable and Victor Mature.

Ron Falzone, associate professor in the Cinema Art + Science department will introduce the film and lead a discussion afterwards. He is an award-winning screenwriter and member of the full-time faculty of Cinema Art + Science at Columbia College Chicago.

A celebrity promoter (Mature) is accused of murdering one of his clients. After beautiful Vicky Lynn is killed, New York City police question Frankie Christopher, a promoter who sponsored Vicky, "glamorized" her and got her jobs as a model. Especially tough on Frankie is obsessed inspector Ed Cornell, who has never failed to get his man. Jerry MacDonald, a more sympathetic policeman, asks Frankie to tell them how he met Vicky, and Frankie tells his story.

The Big Read is a program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest.
