Over more than 20 years as a film critic, Des Moines-raised Ann Hornaday has amassed an oeuvre that includes her Pulitzer-nominated work at the Washington Post and a new book — Talking Pictures: How to Watch Movies (available for purchase at the Dundee). We are in the midst of presenting a stellar six-film series, Ann Hornaday: Talking Pictures, and soon Ann will join us for a very special evening at the movies.
On Thursday, Aug 9, the celebrated film writer will join us at the Dundee Theater to introduce Sweet Smell of Success, followed by a discussion moderated by Film Streams Education Director Diana Martinez, PhD, and a book signing.

Dir. Alexander Mackendrick — USA — 1957
Filmed in black and white, it was both shimmeringly glamorous and seedy, resembling a Weegee photograph come to life. — Ann Hornaday
