AMADEUS (Orion, 1984)
In this Academy-Award winning film based on Peter Shaffer's 1979 play, the lives of genius composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and Antonio Salieri, the once respected but long-since forgotten court composer of Emperor Joseph II, are the starting point for a highly fictionalized drama of envy and audacity. Directed by Miloš Forman, the lush production stars Tom Hulce as loutish Mozart and F. Murray Abraham as the refined Salieri. Nominated for eleven Academy Awards, it won eight, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay for Peter Shaffer and Best Actor for Abraham. The original soundtrack recording with Mozart’s music performed by the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields, conducted by Sir Neville Marriner, won a Grammy Award and became one of the best-selling classical albums of all time.

Holiday Affair showing at The Library of Congress Packard Campus

HOLIDAY AFFAIR (RKO, 1949)
Janet Leigh stars in this Christmas gem as war widow Connie Ennis, who lives in a New York apartment with her precocious young son Timmy. While working undercover as a holiday comparison shopper, she inadvertently gets laid-back toy salesman Steve Mason (Robert Mitchum) fired from his job. Though Connie is engaged to a nice respectable lawyer (Wendell Corey), Steve’s appearance in her world shakes up her well-structured life. Don Hartman produced and directed this charming romantic comedy. Gordon Gebert, who charmed critics and audiences alike as Timmy, will make a special appearance for a Q&A after the film.

Rhonda Vincent, The Queen of Bluegrass to perform at The State Theatre of Culpeper

Bluegrass vocalist and fiddler Rhonda Vincent began her professional music career at the age of five, playing drums with her family’s band, the Sally Mountain Show. She picked up the mandolin at eight and the fiddle at ten, performing with the family band at festivals on weekends. After appearing on TNN’s nationally televised You Can Be a Star program in her mid-twenties, Vincent struck out on her own, singing with the Grand Ole Opry’s Jim Ed Brown, eventually leading to a deal with Rebel Records. Her work with Brown and her Rebel recordings caught the attention of Giant Nashville’s president, James Stroud, who signed Vincent to record two contemporary country albums. After her time at Giant, she moved to Rounder Records, and demonstrated her passion for the traditional music she grew up with, on Back Home Again.

A car accident in December 1999 kept her from a planned trip to Nashville for auditions, so she hired her band (unusually named the Rage) through the Internet. Rhonda Vincent & the Rage have gained popularity at bluegrass festivals since their formation, playing hard-driving, high-energy contemporary bluegrass music. Her 2001 album, The Storm Still Rages, was nominated for seven International Bluegrass Music Association awards, including Female Vocalist of the Year, while fiddle player Michael Cleveland and banjo player Tom Adams earned nominations in their respective instrumental categories. A three-year unbroken string of IBMA Female Vocalist of the Year awards led to the 2003 release of One Step Ahead, another tour, and another well-deserved showering of critical praise.

Recorded in front of a hometown crowd in St. Louis, Ragin’ Live arrived in 2005, followed by All American Bluegrass Girl in 2006, Good Thing Going in 2008, and Destination Life in 2009. After parting ways with longtime label Rounder Records, Vincent released Taken in 2010, and followed it with 2011′s Your Money and My Good Looks, a duets album with Gene Watson. Released in 2012, Sunday Mornin’ Singin’: Live! was a gospel-themed album and DVD recorded at the 100-year-old Greentop United Methodist Church in Greentop, Missouri, where Vincent first began singing in public as a child. Early in 2014, Vincent returned with Only Me, a double-disc set that showcased her bluegrass and country roots.

Ten has generated a tremendous buzz in US markets nationwide for their authentic reproduction of a live Pearl Jam concert. “This is the most authentic tribute act I have ever seen, and I have seen a bunch” was the quote of a representative of Clear Channel Communications at the inaugural show in May of 2003. Since that night Ten has performed well over 500 shows over 10 yrs and has firmly established themselves as the premier touring Pearl Jam Tribute act in the US and probably the world…
As the longest touring Tribute to Pearl Jam in the US, Ten will be touring nationally once again in 2014!

The Barker showing at the Library of Congress Packard Campus

Wanting a better life for his son Chris, side show barker Nifty Miller tries to break up the boy’s’ romance with a tough carnival girl and sends him away to law school. George Fitzmaurice directed this Pre-Code romantic drama that stars Milton Sills, Douglas Fairbanks Jr., Dorothy Mackaill and Betty Compson. Completed as a silent picture in the summer of 1928, “The Barker” was put back into production in November so that Vitaphone talking sequences could be added one month before the film's New York premiere. Despite the short deadline, the interchange of soundtrack and picture in the part-talking version was unusually sophisticated for 1928. This rare screening of “The Barker” is a recent restoration print, courtesy of UCLA Film and Television Archive. The Vitaphone ragtime jazz musical short “Red Nichols and His Five Pennies” will precede the feature.

The Castle showing at The Library of Congress Packard Campus

THE CASTLE (Miramax, 1997)
This delightfully charming Australian comedy was the biggest hit film in 1997 in its native land. After it played at the Sundance Film Festival, Roger Ebert called it “one of those comic treasures like ‘The Full Monty’ that shows its characters in full bloom of glorious eccentricity.” Working-class tow-truck driver and father of four Darryl Kerrigan's only distinguishing feature is his beaming reverence for his home and family. Although his kids appear to be underachievers and his home is located on the edge of a major international airport, his family is his pride and joy and his home is his castle. So when government officials demand that Kerrigan sell his house for an expansion of the airport, he fights back through the legal system- all the way up to the Supreme Court. The Kerrigan’s optimism is inspirational and the family’s belief in themselves and creative spin on what some perceive as negative is both hilarious and touching. Directed by Rob Sitch, it stars Michael Caton, Anne Tenney, and Eric Bana in his screen debut. Rated R for language.

The Exile showing at The Library of Congress Packard Campus

THE EXILE (Universal, 1947)
Masterful German-born filmmaker Max Ophuls made his American directorial debut with this historical drama, written and produced by Douglas Fairbanks Jr. Fairbanks also stars as England's King Charles II, who was exiled to Holland during the period known as the English Commonwealth led by Oliver Cromwell. In this fictional account, Paule Croset plays a young farm girl who captures Charles’ heart, with Maria Montez as a former paramour, the French Countess Anbella. A swashbuckler in the manner of Douglas Fairbanks Sr., here the younger Fairbanks gets to show off some dashing swordplay and acrobatics. In fact, Fairbanks even uses a sword in this film that his father had used in the making of “The Iron Mask” (1929). Also featured in the cast are Henry Daniell, Nigel Bruce and Robert Coote.

Union Depot showing at The Library of Congress Packard Campus

UNION DEPOT (Warner Bros., 1932)
Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., then one of Warner Bros. top male stars, gives one of his best performances as homeless jailbird Chick Miller in this Pre-Code drama set in a bustling train station. When Chick stumbles upon some lost cash, he helps out stranded and penniless chorus girl Joan Blondell who is being pursued by a sinister man. The tale of criss-crossing fates set in real time brings to mind MGM’s glossier “Grand Hotel,” which beat “Union Depot” to the screen by only three months. Directed by Alfred E. Green, the fast-paced story showcases a number of Warner Bros. contract players including Guy Kibbee, Frank McHugh and Alan Hale. The astoundingly elaborate Union Depot set was used in Warners' films for years to come. The Laurel & Hardy comedy short “Me and My Pal” will precede the feature.
