Instructor: Martha Powers

According to Anton Chekhov, “People don’t notice whether it’s winter or summer when they’re happy.” So forget the weather and enjoy four classic Cary Grant films, guaranteed to make you smile.
  •  Jan. 24: Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House (1948): Cary Grant and Myrna Loy play a New York City couple who decide to have a new home in the country. Learning experiences ensue.
  •  Jan. 31: Operation Petticoat (1959): A pink submarine? You bet! Rear Admiral Cary Grant commands an obsolete vessel with Tony Curtis as his aide. They pick up five Navy nurses and thwart Tokyo Rose.              
  •  Feb. 7: Father Goose (1964): On duty as a coast watcher for the Navy, Cary Grant rescues French school teacher Lesley Caron and seven young schoolgirls.
  •  Feb. 14: The Philadelphia Story (1940): Snooty socialite Katharine Hepburn is about to be married again, but ex-hubby Cary Grant enters the scene and fate takes a hand. A classic romance for Valentine’s Day!
