Charles Laughton Film Series: "Mutiny on the Bounty"

Wednesday, June 17, 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 unhandsome face meant that leading-man roles were not open to him, Laughton carved a career out of 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 pm, join Oak Park film historian Doug Deuchler on Wednesday afternoons to screen and discuss some of Charles Laughton's most unforgettable films.
