An Evening with Charlie Korsmo

Men Don't Leave

United States | 1990 | Paul Brickman

Men Don't Leave

Charles Korsmo is a law professor at Case Western Reserve University. But before he became a lawyer and teacher, he was Charlie Korsmo, a very successful child actor in a number of high profile Hollywood films—Dick Tracy (second-billed to Warren Beatty as the “Kid”), Hook (playing Jack “Jackie” Banning), What About Bob?, et al. Tonight Korsmo appears in person to answer audience questions about his short-lived screen career—and his decision to leave acting—after a screening of the first movie he appeared in, Men Don’t Leave, which he thinks may also be the best. Paul Brickman’s follow-up to Risky Business remains the last movie Brickman has directed, as well as one of the most overlooked and underappreciated Hollywood films of the past 25 years. Jessica Lange and her future American Horror Story castmate Kathy Bates star in the movie, a funny and very moving tale of a recently widowed woman trying to raise two sons in Baltimore. Arliss Howard, Chris O’Donnell, and Joan Cusack co-star.

35mm. 113 min. plus Q&A. Special admission $10; Cinematheque members $8; age 25 & under $7; no passes, twofers, or radio winners. Thanks to Paul Brickman.
