- Classic Film: A Night at the Opera (1935, 92 min)
4/1/2014, 7:00 pm, Cranford Community Center, 220 Walnut Avenue

In the opening scene we are introduced to Groucho Marx as penny-ante promoter Otis B. Driftwood. After a sumptuous dinner with a beautiful blonde at a fancy restaurant, he tries to cadge another free meal from his wealthy patroness. The dignified dowager complains that Driftwood had promised to get her into high society, but has done nothing so far. He counters by introducing her to pompous opera entrepreneur Gottleib; all Mrs. Claypool has to do is invest several hundred thousand dollars in Gottleib's opera company, and her entree into society is in the bag. As was often the case in their movies, the brothers' comedy takes aim at the pompous and pious hypocrisy of the upper crust, and this movie features many of their most famous routines, including the stateroom scene, the contract scene, the bed-switching sequence, and the operatic finale. The film's openly subversive and derisive tone was a perfect match for a Depression-era crowd looking for some wealthy authority figures to laugh at. —All Movie

With Gail Alterman

The Crane-Phillips House Museum,

Objects tell stories, and clothing that has been saved, or even remembered, can convey memories. Some people save an article of clothing because it was something special or was a particular favorite. Maybe an item was worn for a special occasion, or is the result of a specific event in a life that was not their wedding. Even men save articles of clothing - most veterans save their uniforms. What have you saved and why did you save it? Have you saved something that belonged to a relative, or to a now grown-up child? Open up your closets and share why you held onto a piece of clothing from many years ago. Bring articles of clothing that have special personal meaning, and bring your memories of shopping in town centers that were not indoor malls.
Admission is free. Space is limited so reservations are required. To reserve your seat, please call the Historical Society’s office at 908-276-0082 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Established in 1928, the Cranford Historical Society, a non-profit organization, has been dedicated to the preservation and perpetuation of Cranford’s history.
