“Only Angels Have Wings” featured at BYU film series Jan. 27

The Special Collections Motion Picture Archive Film Series at Brigham Young University will screen the romantic drama “Only Angels Have Wings” Friday, Jan. 27, at 7 p.m. in the Harold B. Lee Library Auditorium on the first floor.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Admission is free, but seating is limited. Children age eight and over are welcome. No food or drink is permitted in the auditorium.

“Only Angels Have Wings” stars Cary Grant and Jean Arthur in their only film pairing.

The movie centers on a group of American aviators headed by Grant who operate a freight airline in South America. Matters are complicated by the simultaneous and unexpected arrivals of show girl Arthur and Grant's old flame, played by a very young Rita Hayworth in her first important film.

Directed and produced in the late 1930s by Howard Hawks, creator of some of the greatest movies of the decade, “Angels” demonstrates the central themes of professionalism, personal redemption and the relationship between men, women and work.

An aviator himself, Hawks claimed the incidents and personalities he portrayed in the film came from people he knew personally. In an interview with writer Joseph McBride, Hawks said, “There wasn't one single scene in the whole picture that wasn't real."

For more information, contact James D’Arc at (801) 422-6371 or visit sc.lib.byu.edu for a complete season schedule.
