Make yours ‘A Face in the Crowd’

Collier Freedom and the Collier County Democratic Party present two 60th anniversary benefit screenings of the landmark film “A Face in the Crowd” on Tuesday, April 25, at the Sugden Community Theatre.

Naples resident K.C. Schulberg, nephew of the film’s screenwriter, Budd Schulberg, will introduce the screenings and conduct a Q&A after each one. The screenings at 5 and 8 p.m. will be preceded by cocktail receptions at 4 and 7 p.m., respectively.

The elder Mr. Schulberg teamed with director Elia Kazan on the 1957 film that focused on the transformative power of a new medium — television — to usher in an era where politics and entertainment would become seamlessly and irrevocably intertwined.

Tickets for $40 ($25 for ages 21 and younger) can be purchased at www.naplesplayers.org or by calling the box office at 263-7990. ¦
