Member of The Wedding, The (Blu-ray)

We no longer offer this title for sale, this listing is here for reference. Screen Archives still carries a wide selection of Twilight Time titles.
Uber-producer Stanley Kramer (Judgment at Nuremberg) and sterling director Fred Zinnemann (A Man for All Seasons) bring us The Member of the Wedding (1952), a sensitive film version of Carson McCullers’ Broadway play, adapted from her own novel. Julie Harris—who created the role of yearning adolescent tomboy, Frankie, on the stage—is joined here by fellow original cast members Ethel Waters, as the mother figure Berenice, and Brandon de Wilde, as a mischievous young cousin, John Henry. Cinematography is by the great Hal Mohr (Rancho Notorious) and the extraordinary score – available on this Twilight Time release as an isolated track – is by legendary composer Alex North.
