*8:20 show introduced by
Stanwyck biographer Victoria Wilson

“Not only Capra’s masterpiece, but also one of the great love stories to come out of Hollywood in the 30s – subtle, delicate, moody, mystical, and passionate.”
– Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader

“Asther is actually quite unusual in the picture, and he gives a very delicate performance… I think it’s one of Capra’s finest pictures.”
– Martin Scorsese
