Time for a Little Suspense

Movie Time for Adults continues in September with more  "Movies of the 40's."  Our first feature will be Alfred Hitchcock's "Shadow of Doubt," starring Teresa Wright and Joseph Cotten.  Can the charming Uncle Charlie really be planning his niece's death?  Is he the Merry Widow murderer?  Join us on Friday, Sept 4, at 2:00 p.m. to see what happens.

The second feature,  "Sorry, Wrong Number," stars Barbara Stanwyck and Burt Lancaster.  Young, rich, bedridden Barbara Stanwyck dials a telephone number one night and overhears two men plotting the murder of an unidentified woman.  Is it her husband?  Is she the intended victim?   Find out what happens on Friday, September 18, at 2:00 p.m.

Popcorn  will be provided by the Friends of the Parker Williams Library.
