The Importance of Being Earnest

Skirball Cultural Center

2701 N. Sepulveda Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90049

1:30pm

Director Anthony Asquith’s adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s witty Victorian-era play stars Michael Redgrave as rich bachelor Jack Worthing and Michael Denison as his debt-ridden friend Algernon Moncrieff. In an attempt to win the affections of Jack’s ward, Algernon assumes the identity of fictitious Ernest, while Jack plans to marry Algernon’s cousin, Gwendolen--until her governess reveals secrets concerning both men. (1952, 96 min. No MPAA rating.) This screening is part of the Skirball’s ongoing Classic Films series. For March and April 2015, films are organized under the theme "Princes and Paupers." March 4 marks the beginning of Purim, a Jewish holiday that commemorates the salvation of the Jewish people in Persia with the aid of Queen Esther’s triumphant use of hidden identity. Taking inspiration from this story, enjoy four FREE films about mistaken identity and disguise.
