Austin Film Society presents Wait Till The Sun Shines, Nellie with Karina Longworth
Author and podcaster Karina Longworth of You Must Remember This will be on hand for a conversation with AFS Founder & Artistic Director Richard Linklater. They'll discuss Howard Hughes, the subject of Longworth's new book, Seduction, following a screening of the 1952 film Wait Till The Sun Shines, Nellie.
The rarely-screened film that is a showcase for luminescent leading lady Jean Peters, who features prominently in the book as one of Hughes’ many loves. In the movie, directed by Henry King, she plays a young wife who, when called to submerge her own ambitions in life for her husbands’ sake, instead rebels.
