First Monday Movies - The Letter - December 7th

The heavy stillness of the tropical night is suddenly broken by shots ringing out... and a woman with a gun descending a staircase. Holding the gun is Leslie Crosbie (Bette Davis, in one of her greatest performances). She says she killed the man in self-defense. Her poise and stoicism impress nearly everyone who meets her and the case seems straightforward. But then his widow turns up claiming to have a letter written by Leslie to the dead man which could get her convicted of murder. From a play by Somerset Maugham. Directed by William Wyler. (1940, 95 mins.)

Monday, December 7th @ 6:30 p.m.
