Film “Splendor in the Grass” Warren Beatty, Natalie Wood. It’s 1928 in oil rich southeast Kansas. High school seniors Bud Stamper, football captain, and Deanie Loomis are in love but have only gone as far as kissing. Both face pressures within the relationship, yet Bud has urges to go farther despite knowing in his heart that Deanie will end up with a reputation like his own sister, Ginny Stamper, known as the loose, immoral party girl. Bud’s overbearing father, Ace Stamper, the local oil baron, does not believe Bud can do wrong and expects him to go to Yale after graduation… 1962 Oscar winner for Best Writing. Natalie Wood nominated for Best Actress. Directed by Elia Kazan.

We will have a summer break in June and possibly July. Next scheduled IHMN will be Wednesday, August 29th. The August film will be another “epic” (longer film length with intermission) and be shown in a screening room.
