Event Details

July brings the return of Request Month for the Williamsburg Regional Library’s Thursday Afternoon Film Series, with movies specifically requested by library users.  The movies will be shown beginning at 2 p.m. in the Williamsburg Library Theatre, 515 Scotland Street. They are free of charge and tickets or reservations are not required.  Call the Adult Services Department at (757) 259-4050 for more information.

July 1 – Sergeant York (1941)
Gary Cooper won an Oscar for his portrayal of Alvin C. York, the deeply religious, sharpshooting Tennessee farm boy who won a Medal of Honor in the First World War. This superb film, directed by Howard Hawks and co-staring Walter Brennan and Margaret Wycherly is thoughtful, patriotic and heartwarming.

July 8 – The Road to Zanzibar (1941)
In their second “Road” picture, Bob Hope, Bing Crosby and Dorothy Lamour go on safari in Africa in search of a lost diamond mine. The usual song-infused comedic chaos ensues. Una Merkel and Eric Blore costar under the direction of Victor Schertzinger.

July 15 – Notorious (1946)
In one of Alfred Hitchcock’s best films, An American agent (Cary Grant) recruits a disgraced party girl (Ingrid Bergman) to infiltrate a spy ring in Brazil. Ben Hecht wrote the taut script with Claude Rains and Leopoldine Konstantin doing stellar work in supporting roles.

July 22 – Random Harvest (1942)
This romantic tearjerker about a shell-shocked World War I vet who is separated from his true love by amnesia was nominated for seven Academy Awards. The film based, on a novel by James Hilton, stars Ronald Colman and Greer Garson with Mervyn LeRoy directing.

July 29 – The Caine Mutiny (1954)
This engrossing drama about mutiny on board a U.S. Navy ship during World War II and the resulting court martial is based on Herman Wouk’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. Director Edward Dmytryk and the cast, Humphrey Bogart, Jose Ferrer, Van Johnson and Fred MacMurray, all do fine work.
