Event Details

Directed by George Cukor

Judy Holliday, William Holden


Judy Holliday won an Oscar for her performance as Billie Dawn, the brassy show-girl a journalist (Played by William Holden) seeks to educate into some form of respectability. Harry Brock, her wealthy but uncouth fiancé has arrived with her in Washington DC hoping to arrange a shady deal with a politician. Fearing Billie is too uneducated for the DC set, Brock hires journalist Paul Verrall to add some polish -- but Billie proves to be much smarter than anyone expected.

Organizer

Mechanics' Institute Library & Chess Room

The Mechanics' Institute Library and Chess Room is an historic membership library, cultural event center, and chess club located in the Financial District of San Francisco, California at 57 Post Street. Founded in 1854 to serve the vocational needs of out-of-work gold miners, the Institute today is a favorite of avid readers, writers, downtown employees, students, film lovers, chess players, and the 21st century nomadic worker who needs a quiet place to plug in a laptop and do research.
