First Monday Movies at Excelsior on August 6, 6:30-8pm

The movie for August is Morning Glory (1933, 74 mins) with Katharine Hepburn and Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., directed by Lowell Sherman.

When a naively innocent, aspiring actress arrives on the Broadway scene, she is taken under the wing of several theater veterans who mentor her to ultimate success.

Katharine Hepburn won her first Oscar for Best Actress for Morning Glory. She went on to win 3 more, for Guess Who's Coming for Dinner (1968), The Lion in Winter (1969) and On Golden Pond (1982).
