REMEMBERING CARY GRANT

AN EVENING WITH JENNIFER GRANT

On-stage conversation with Jennifer Grant, book-signing and 55th Anniversary screening of

TO CATCH A THIEF (1956)

Wednesday, April 27 7:00pm

           

How the sweeping vistas of the Riviera pale next to the sight of Cary Grant and Grace Kelly falling in love in

this sprightly heist movie. Grant stars as reformed cat-burglar John Robie, who comes out of retirement

when a new jewel thief goes to work using his signature style of thievery. Kelly plays Frances, a proper

debutante who discovers that larceny is an aphrodisiac - a theme Hitchcock would pursue more explicitly in

Marnie - and tests Robie's resolve by throwing herself, and her priceless jewels, at him. With glorious

costume design by Edith Head, a hilarious supporting turn by Jessie Royce Landis as Kelly's mother (she

would play Grant's mother in Hitchcock's North by Northwest four years later) and unforgettable fireworks

(both literal and figurative), To Catch a Thief remains one of the most charming and exciting films from the

Master of Suspense. 106 mins. The program will be hosted by historian and author Foster Hirsch.

Good Stuff: A Reminiscence of My Father, Cary Grant

Good Stuff is an enchanting portrait of the profound and loving relationship between a daughter and her

father, who just happens to be one of America's most iconic male movie stars. Jennifer Grant was born and

raised in Los Angeles, California. She graduated from Stanford University with a degree in history. Her first

acting role was in Aaron Spelling's Beverly Hills, 90210, and she later appeared in Friends, Super Dave, and

CSI, as well as several feature films. She lives with her son, Cary Benjamin, in Beverly Hills.

Complimentary copies of Jennifer's book, Good Stuff, will be distributed (limited supply).

 

THE PERFECT HOST

Wednesday, April 27 7:30pm

Warwick Wilson (David Hyde Pierce) is the consummate host. He carefully prepares for a dinner party, the

table impeccably set and the duck perfectly timed for 8:30pm. John Taylor (Clayne Crawford) is a career

criminal. He's just robbed a bank and needs to get off the streets. He finds himself on Warwick's doorstep

posing as a friend of a friend, new to Los Angeles, who's been mugged and lost his luggage. As the wine

flows and the evening progresses, we discover just how deceiving appearances can be. Co-writer/director

Nick Tomnay's dark-hearted comedy/drama is full of outrageous moments and suspenseful twists.

Audiences may never look at David Hyde Pierce the same way again after seeing this slippery psychological

thriller that reveals just how far we're willing to go to satisfy our needs. Also featuring Nathaniel Parker,

Helen Reddy, Megahn Perry, Joseph Will and Tyrees Allen. 93 mins. David Hyde Pierce in attendance.

 

 

DAVID HYDE PIERCE

Emmy and Tony Award winner David Hyde Pierce made his professional and Broadway debut in 1982 as

Award for Outstanding Actor in a Musical. In 2007 he won the Tony Award and earned another Drama

Desk Award nomination for his role as Lieutenant Frank Cioffi in the musical comedy "Curtains," before

going on to appear in the Manhattan Theatre Club revival of the 1930's comedy "Accent on Youth," and

most recently, in the acclaimed London and Broadway production of David Hirson's "La Bete. " In addition

Life, Osmosis Jones, Treasure Planet and The Perfect Host. His television credits include Norman Lear's
