Burt Lancaster's "Flame and the Arrow" at BYU film series Nov. 20

“The Flame and the Arrow,” the 1950s Technicolor adventure, will be screened at 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 20, at Brigham Young University’s Harold B. Lee Library Auditorium.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Admission is free, but early arrival is encouraged as seating is limited. No food or drink is permitted in the auditorium, and children ages 8 and older are welcome. BYU dress standards apply. BYU curator James V. D’Arc will introduce the film.

In “The Flame and the Arrow,” Burt Lancaster stars as Dardo, an Italian Robin Hood, who leads oppressed villagers against Hessian invaders, commanded by the dreaded Count Ulrich. Virginia Mayo co-stars as the niece of the Hessian invader and who falls in love with Dardo. The film includes an inspiring musical score by Academy Award-winner Max Steiner, whose papers and memorabilia are housed in BYU's L. Tom Perry Special Collections.

The screening is part of the continuing BYU Motion Picture Archive Film Series, co-sponsored by Special Collections, the Friends of the Harold B. Lee Library and Dennis and Linda Gibson. All films in the series are shown from original film prints.
