Monday Night Movies: Love Me or Leave Me (1955)
12/3/2012 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM
This December, the Friends of the Mill Valley Library will screen movies that are based upon American women and songs.
Love Me or Leave Me (1955)
December 3rd, Monday @ 7:30 p.m.
There are many wonderful Hollywood musicals that take up the story line of a composer or a singer, but the one movie that stands out from all the rest is Love Me or Leave Me. It is the absolutely perfect blending of story and song, depicting the career of jazz singer Ruth Etting (Doris Day) and her tempestuous marriage to Gangster Martin "Moe the Gimp" Snyder (James Cagney), who helped propel her to stardom. Myrl Alderman (Cameron Mitchell) is the pianist who loves her, but is shut out of her life. Written by Daniel Fuchs and Isobel Lennart and directed by Charles Vidor.
Doors open at 7:00. This series is sponsored by The Friends of the Mill Valley Library. For more Programs and Events at the Library, see the Library Events Calendar.
