A period drama honored with three Academy Award nominations in 1940, the film "All This, and Heaven Too," will be featured at Ventfort Hall Mansion and Gilded Age Museum, 104 Walker St., at 3:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 4.
A Victorian tea will be served at intermission.
Stockbridge Library Curator Barbara Allen will comment on novelist Rachel Field, author of the 1938 bestseller that became the film, who grew up in Stockbridge and was a member of the town’s distinguished family.
Tom Hayes, a member of Ventfort Hall’s program committee, will discuss the film’s production; its stars, Bette Davis and Charles Boyer; its director, Anatole Litvak; and the supporting cast.
Field was inspired to write the novel based on family reminiscences, recollections, anecdotes, and other data.
Admission for the filming, commentaries and Victorian tea is $18 for advance reservations and $23 day of the event.
Reservations are recommended as seating is limited. Call Ventfort Hall at (413) 637-3206 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
