Lee Grant received an Oscar nomination for her supporting role in the film. With Pearl Bailey, Diana Sands, Louis Gossett. Print courtesy of the Academy Film Archive and MGM.


SHAMPOO (1975) – 112 mins.
A classic tale of womanizing and blow-outs in the fast lane of the swinging ‘60s, written by Robert Towne and Warren Beatty. Lee Grant won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress; the film was nominated for Writing, Supporting Actor (Jack Warden) and Art Direction. With Beatty, Julie Christie, Goldie Hawn. Print courtesy of the Academy Film Archive and Sony Pictures.

THE LAST DETAIL (1973) – 105 mins. Two career sailors are assigned to deliver a young petty thief to the brig for an eight-year stint, and along the way they decide to show him a thing or two about life, drinking and sex.

Print courtesy of the Academy Film Archive and Sony Pictures. 105 mins.


COMING HOME (1978)
A profoundly moving anti-war film set against the personal drama of a love triangle involving a disabled Vietnam vet (Jon Voight), the wife of an Army Captain (Jane Fonda) and her husband (Bruce Dern). The film was nominated for eight Academy Awards, including Best Picture, and Voight and Fonda both won Oscars. Print courtesy of the Academy Film Archive and MGM. 127 mins.



Sunday, June 28th at 7 p.m. at the Linwood Dunn Theater

BEING THERE (1979) In his most sublime performance, Peter Sellers portrays an isolated and apparently simpleminded gardener whose entire world view is shaped by what he has seen on television. His subsequent celebrity provides Ashby with an opportunity to examine the follies of contemporary culture. Sellers was Oscar-nominated and Melvyn Douglas won for his supporting role. With Shirley MacLaine and Jack Warden. Print courtesy of the Academy Film Archive and Warner Bros. 120 mins.
