Free Classic Film Series at DPL: Gods and Monsters

September 29, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Starring Ian McKellen, Brendan Fraser, and Lynn Redgrave. Directed by Bill Condon.

Gods and Monsters is a speculation about the last days of the director James Whale, who was open about his sexuality in an era when most homosexuals in Hollywood stayed prudently in the closet. Whale (1889-1957) directed some 21 films, but is best remembered for seven made between 1931 and 1939: FrankensteinThe Old Dark HouseThe Invisible ManBride of FrankensteinShow BoatThe Great Garrick, and The Man in the Iron Mask. At the time of his death he had not made a movie in 16 years, but still lived comfortably, dabbling at a little painting and a little lusting.” – rogerebert.com. 105 minutes. Rated R.
