This month’s feature is Portrait of Jennie
1948 86 min. Not Rated
Directed by William Dieterle. With Joseph Cotten, Jennifer Jones, Ethel Barrymore, Lillian Gish.
This David O. Selznick production is a haunted romantic story of a most extraordinary kind. Struggling artist Joseph Cotten finds inspiration to paint a picture of a young, mysterious girl named Jennie (Jennifer Jones, the soon-to-be Mrs. Selznick) he meets in Central Park in the 1830s. The girl then appears at different intervals in Cotten’s life, but her unusual aging fascinates and perplexes the smitten Cotten at the same time.
