First Friday Film Series presents: A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum

Friday Sep 1, 2017, 7:30 p.m.

Monthly series: 1st Friday of every month. Free and open to public.

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum contains Buster Keaton’s last appearance on film. This 1966 full color musical comedy also just barely contains Zero Mostel, in perhaps his most manic performance on film.

Mostel plays Pseudolus, not just a slave, “the lyingest, cheatingest, sloppiest slave in all of Rome”. Pseudolos’ master falls in love with the neighbor’s daughter, getting Phil Silvers’ character (the buyer and seller of beautiful women next door), involved. Of course, other suitors have their eyes on our fair Philia as well. Heroes, virgins, slaves, Romans, Countrymen, this hilarious farce has it all. A lightweight blast from the past will capstone the summer. We’re viewing it Friday, September 1, 7:30 at the Dennis P. McHugh Piermont Public Library. It’s FREE!

~Film Series Curator, Chris X. Carroll
