Movie Night


Alexandra is not huge movie watcher but she likes old films with Gary Cooper, Gary Grant and such.  Maybe James Dean also. 

East of Eden is a novel by Nobel Prize winner John Steinbeck, published in September 1952. Often described as Steinbeck's most ambitious novel, East of Eden brings to life the intricate details of two families, the Trasks and the Hamiltons, and their interwoven stories. The novel was originally addressed to Steinbeck's young sons, Thom and John (then 6½ and 4½ years old, respectively). Steinbeck wanted to describe the Salinas Valley for them in detail: the sights, sounds, smells, and colors. ( Wikipedia)

East of Eden is a 1955 film, directed by Elia Kazan, and loosely based on the second half of the 1952 novel of the same name by John Steinbeck. It is about a wayward young man who, while seeking his own identity, vies for the affection of his deeply religious father against his favored brother, thus retelling the story of Cain and Abel.

Eedenistä itään on Elia Kazanin ohjaama yhdysvaltalainen elokuva vuodelta 1955. Se perustuu John Steinbeckin samannimiseen romaaniin vuodelta 1952. Elokuvan tapahtumat sijoittuvat vuoteen 1917 ja Kaliforniaan. Se kertoo melko menestyvän uskonnollisen viljelijän kahdesta aikamiespojasta ja heijastelee Raamatun tarinaa Kainista ja Abelista. Elokuvaa on sanottu James Deanin läpimurtoelokuvaksi. Toisessa pääosassa on menestyksekäs Broadway-näyttelijä Julie Harris. Wikipedia
