Where the Sidewalk Ends (1950)

Toronto Film Society presented Where the Sidewalk Ends (1950) on Monday, March 8, 1976 in a double bill with The Sea Wolf as part of the Season 28 Monday Evening Film Buff Series, Programme 5.

Change of Programme: The film originally scheduled for this evening, Tight Spot, is unavailable.  We had intended to show The Sun Shines Bright in its place, but due to a mix-up in shipping procedure the film will arrive too late for tonight’s screening.  However, it will be possible to show The Sun Shines Bright on Monday evening, March 22 (two weeks from tonight; same place) in addition to the regular Toronto Film Society Silent Series programme that night.

All Members of TFS Film Buff Series are invited to attend the combined Silent Series/Film Buff Series evening on March 22, 1976, at the O.I.S.E. auditorium.  Starting time is 8:15 pm.

John Ford once said of his own The Sun Shines Bright (1953) “…[it] is my favourite picture–I love it.  And it’s true to life, it happened.  Irvin Cobb got everything he wrote from real life, and that’s the best of his Judge Priest stories.”
