GREENWICH, Conn. – Greenwich Library’s Cult Films series will feature the 1964 James Bond movie, 'Goldfinger,' at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 10, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the movie.
The movie features Sean Connery as Bond, who is trying to catch a millionaire, played by Gert Frobe, who has plans to raid Fort Knox. The first Bond movie to earn an Academy Award, "Goldfinger" was a success, financially and critically.
Other stars in the film are Honor Blackman, Shirley Eaton and Harold Sakata. The film includes mature themes and violence, though it is unrated. It is 110 minutes long, and in color.
Throughout the Cult Film Series, librarian Ed Morrisey plans to cover many genres and favorite producers, with movies that have been considered over-the-top or edgy. Those interested in attending may find some of Morrisey’s treatment of the cult films in his blog, along with a complete list of upcoming films in the series, at the website www.greenwichlibrary.org/CultFilms.aspx.
The series is free and open to the public. Movies will be shown in the Meeting Room. For more information, email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 203- 622-7918.
