THE MIRACLE OF MORGAN’S CREEK
December 14 @ 19:30 - 22:00
Classic Cinema Club – Ealing presents: THE MIRACLE OF MORGAN’S CREEK at Ealing Town Hall (14 DEC 19:30):
After a small town throws a big party to send off the troops, a young woman wakes up to find herself married, pregnant – and suffering from an unfortunate bout of amnesia, with no memory of the wild night before, her husband’s name, or his identity. Her stern hothead father and her wimpy but devoted childhood sweetheart rush to solve the mystery, or resolve her predicament, but their good intentions counteract each other, leading to more confusion and complications. With its wacky situations and sharp-witted dialogue, this was a huge box office hit, and is possibly the fastest and funniest of the Hollywood humourist’s screwball satires.
From the writer-director of ‘Sullivan’s Travels’ and ‘The Lady Eve’.
Counted in the top ten films of the year, winner of a best acting prize, and nominated for best director from New York groups; nominated for the Academy Award for best original screenplay.
Voted among the greatest comedies of all time by the American Film Institute and Premiere magazine.
