Jane Powell Live And In Person At Lincoln Center

Written by: FFT Webmaster | November 11th, 2011

The ranks of Hollywood movie stars from the industry’s golden age is quickly thinning, so it is not without much excitement that one of the legends of those years will be feted in New York next Tuesday. The Film Society of Lincoln Center, in association with Turner Classic Movies, will present a special evening with singer/dancer extraordinaire Jane Powell, one of Hollywood’s most sparkling musical stars of the 1940s and 1950s. Powell, best remembered for the classic musicals ROYAL WEDDING and SEVEN BRIDES FOR SEVEN BROTHERS, will make a special appearance on November 15, joining TCM host Robert Osborne onstage to introduce a screening of TWO WEEKS WITH LOVE (1950), Powell’s personal favorite from among her many memorable film performances. The buoyant musical comedy, featuring choreography by the legendary Busby Berkeley, stars Powell as the eldest daughter of a New York family who blossoms into womanhood during a summer vacation in the Catskills. Ricardo Montalban, Phyllis Kirk, Louis Calhern, Ann Harding and an 18-year-old Debbie Reynolds also star. For more information on this nostalgic nocturne, visit: www.filmlinc.com
