Film Classic in 35mm!
Right before he wrote Network, Paddy Chayefsky penned this savagely funny black comedy about modern health care. Like that subsequent TV satire, it won Chayefsky an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay. George C. Scott stars as the beleaguered Chief of Medicine at a metropolitan hospital beset with problems ranging from ineptitude to murder. Though the doctor himself suffers from impotence and depression, he carries on in the face of disaster. This rarely revived classic has a 100% critics rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Diana Rigg co-stars. 103 min. Special admission $11; members, CIA and CSU I.D. holders, and those age 25 & under $8; no passes, twofers, or radio winners.
CWRU students with ID will be admitted for free.
This event is sponsored by Cinematheque at the Cleveland Institute of Art.
