Emory Cinematheque – Ace in the Hole
October 9 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm
Emory Cinematheque, hosted by Emory University’s Department of Film & Media Studies, presents a weekly film series on Wednesday nights from August 28 through December 4. The Fall 2019 program is focused on Billy Wilder, a writer and director with a cinematic legacy that spans 26 films and six decades. The entire series is free and open to the public.
This evening’s event will be the screening of “Ace in the Hole”. At the first opportunity to serve as his own producer, Wilder realized this no-holds-barred, acid-toned portrayal of exploitative, sensational journalism. America’s appetite for it was too harsh for box office success upon release, but it now stands as one of Wilder’s major achievements, featuring a razor sharp performance from Kirk Douglas.
