“WILD RIVER” STREAMS INTO ACADEMY THEATER IN NYC

hollywoodnews.com: The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ “Monday Nights with Oscar®” series will kick off 2011 with a screening of “Wild River” (1960), starring Montgomery Clift, on Monday, January 24, at 7 p.m. at the newly renovated Academy Theater at Lighthouse International in New York City. Two-time Oscar-nominated screenwriter Jay Cocks (“The Age of Innocence,” “Gangs of New York”) will introduce the film.

In this intense drama set against the backdrop of the Great Depression, Montgomery Clift plays Chuck Glover, a field agent for the Tennessee Valley Authority who must convince an elderly woman (Jo Van Fleet) to give up her property for a project, while he becomes romantically involved with her widowed granddaughter, Carol Baldwin (Lee Remick).

“Wild River” was directed and produced by Elia Kazan, from a screenplay by Paul Osborn based on novels by William Bradford Huie and Borden Deal. The film was restored by the Academy Film Archive with support from The Film Foundation. The print to be screened is courtesy of the Academy Film Archive and Twentieth Century Fox.

Tickets for “Wild River” are $5 for the general public and $3 for Academy members and students with a valid ID. Tickets may be purchased online at www.oscars.org or by mail (a printable order form is available in the Events & Exhibitions section of the website).
