This Weekend’s LRPA After Dark Feature:

 1952’s “The Snows Of Kilimanjaro”

 

Join Lakes Region Public Access Television at 10:30 p.m. this Friday and Saturday night (August 3 & 4) for our “LRPA After Dark” presentation of 1952’s adventurous melodrama “The Snows of Kilimanjaro,” starring Gregory Peck, Susan Hayward and Ava Gardner. 

 

“The Snows of Kilimanjaro” tells the story of American writer Harry Street (Peck) who is on safari in Africa with his second wife Helen (Hayward). Their marriage suffers from Harry drinking, womanizing and world-weary cynicism. A wound on Harry’s leg becomes infected, and as he lays in a feverish delirium, he reflects on his life and past loves. One of his great regrets is losing his beautiful first wife, Cynthia Green (Gardner). Her memory and the way that he lost her haunt his dreams.  As Harry clings to life, Helen nurses him and protects him from the many dangers lurking just outside of the campfire. Will Harry survive the long night, and will he and Helen be able to find love again? 

 

Based on the short story by Ernest Hemingway, “The Snows of Kilimanjaro” was well received by critics and movie goers alike. It was nominated for two Academy Awards, including Best Art Direction and Best Cinematography. In his New York Time column, critic Bosley Crowther noted “ … They have made a picture that constantly fascinates the eye and stimulates the emotions in small, isolated ways.” It is a beautiful and exotic Technicolor film that exemplifies the often spectacular filmmaking of its generation. Need we say more? Grab your popcorn and join LRPA after dark for this gorgeous, dramatic adventure.
