Join us for the classic holiday film Christmas in Connecticut, on Wednesday November 29 at 7 pm in the Great Hall. Free admission.

This romantic comedy from 1945 stars Barbara Stanwyck, Dennis Morgan and Sydney Greenstreet.

Elizabeth Lane (Stanwyck) is a single food writer living in New York whose articles about her fictitious Connecticut farm, husband and baby are admired by housewives across the country. Her publisher, Alexander Yardley (Greenstreet), is unaware of the charade and insists that Elizabeth host a Christmas dinner for returning war hero Jefferson Jones (Morgan), who read all of her recipes while in the hospital, and is so fond of her that his nurse wrote a letter to the publisher.

Facing a career-ending scandal, Lane is forced to comply and in desperation agrees to marry her friend John Sloan (Reginald Gardiner), who has a farm in Connecticut. But all those plans go awry the minute Lane meets her fan Jones and it’s love at first sight.
