The Snows of Kilimanjaro (1952) Tuesday, January 27th, 7PM @ Darkside Cinema

Starring Gregory Peck, Ava Gardner, Susan Hayward and Hildegarde Neff and directed by Henry King, from the short story by Ernest Hemingway.  Peck is doing his best papa bear Hemingway impression as hSnowsoKiliScreeninge literally fight bulls, rhinos and all manner of other scary monster to protect a succession of classic beauties. He also gets drunk and laid like crazy. So basically like, just a regular Wednesday for Ernest Hemingway. With it’s crazy blue screen adventure sequences, this movie was basically the Transformers of 1952, technologically speaking, but it’s also a beautifully filmed production, and the producer is none other than his highness, Darryl F. Zanuck. Prepare for technicolor overload.
