Nothing cools you off more during the sweltering summer months than watching people even sweatier than you are. With this in mind, the Grandview Library presents four perspiration-charged masterpieces sure to make you reach for the nearest pitcher of ice water.
Mondays in August at 6 pm:
- 8/4: Duel in the Sun (1946)
Overbaked Western melodrama with Gregory Peck and Jennifer Jones in passionate love/hate relationship.
- 8/11: The Treasure of the Sierra Madre (1948)
One of Humphrey Bogart's best and most intense performances in John Huston's sweltering morality tale.
- 8/18: Cool Hand Luke (1967)
Paul Newman plays Luke and George Kennedy won an Oscar in this sweaty flick where the only thing cool is the title.
- 8/25: For a Few Dollars More (1965)
The second of Sergio Leone's heated Spaghetti Westerns with Clint Eastwood as the Man with No Name. For mature audiences only.
