Film Classics in 35mm! Peter (O'Toole) the Great


United States | 1982 | Richard Benjamin


A young writer on a top live TV comedy show in 1954 New York spends the week chaperoning the show’s next guest star, Alan Swann (Peter O’Toole), an aging, swashbuckling matinee idol with a drinking problem and a proclivity toward mischief and bad behavior. O’Toole received the sixth of his eight Oscar nominations for this wonderful comedy that was allegedly inspired by an Errol Flynn appearance on Sid Caesar’s Your Show of Shows, for which Mel Brooks and Woody Allen were writers. With Mark Linn-Baker, Jessica Harper, and Joseph Bologna. 92 min. Preceded at showtime by a surprise short.

Special admission $11; members, CIA & CSU I.D. holders, and those age 25 & under $8; no passes, twofers, or radio winners.
