This week, Mal Vincent previews the local showing of the Oscar-winning 1952 film The Bad and the Beautiful starring Lana Turner and Kirk Douglas. This film is about the movie-making industry of the time that looked to a Virginia writer for inspiration for a film because, historically, "Virginia was peppered with sex."
Watch The Bad and the Beautiful for the first time on the big screen, locally, in more than 60 years, on Monday, March 27, 2017 at the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) in Virginia Beach. Read more about the festival.
