Charles Laughton Film Screening: "Ruggles of Red Gap"

Wednesday, June 24, 2015 - 1:30pm to 4:00pm

Tortured but brilliant, Oscar-winner Charles Laughton (1899-1962) was one of the most recognizable and talented actors of his time. Since his portly figure and decidedly un-handsome face meant that leading man roles were not open to him, Laughton carved a career playing a variety of monsters and misfits in films like "The Private Life of Henry VIII" and "The Hunchback of Notre Dame." Through Wednesday, July 15, at 1:30 p.m., join Oak Park film historian Doug Deuchler on Wednesday afternoons to screen and discuss some of Charles Laughton's most unforgettable films.
