Attend the Revolution

Entertainment Weekly columnist Mark Harris will be presenting his acclaimed new book, Pictures at a Revolution, in a free program at the Donnell Library Center Auditorium (20 W. 53rd St. in Manhattan) on Thu., July 10, at 6pm. Subtitled "Five Movies and the Birth of the New Hollywood," the book is an in-depth exploration of the very different films nominated for the 1967 Best Picture Oscar, Bonnie and Clyde, Doctor Dolittle, The Graduate, Guess Who's Coming to Dinner? and In the Heat of the Night. We cleared off a lot of space on our shelves this weekend and given how addictive the few pages I've read from this are I may have to restock them with a copy--or just borrow it from the library. Am I the only one who thinks Doctor Dolittle was robbed?
