Two very different but equally luminous films are screened this weekend at the Packard Campus as we explore visions of love on the big screen.

Strawberry Blonde (Warner Bros, 1941)

A turn-of-the-20th-century love story.  James Cagney looks back on loves sought; those gained and those lost.  While not a musical, the film won the Academy Award for Best Scoring of a Musical Picture due to its use of over a dozen popular tunes from the early 1900’s.  Raoul Walsh directed and the film features Olivia de Havilland, Rita Hayworth and Jack Carson in the cast.  Black and White, 97 minutes. Also a short subject.

Somewhere In Time (Universal, 1981)

This part period-drama, part time-travel fantasy comes from science fiction author Richard Matheson, who adapted the screenplay from his own novel. Filmed primarily on location at the sprawling Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island, this romance stars Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour, whose love transcends the laws of time. Also featured are a villainous Christopher Plummer and a memorable original score based on the music of Rachmaninoff. Color, 103 minutes.
