What a treat! The movie this evening is BALL of FIRE. Released in 1941, this wonderful comedy stars Gary Cooper as one of eight professors whose quiet cloistered lives are knocked for a loop by the uninhibited showgirl and gangster's moll Barbara Stanwyck.

Gary Cooper starred in three films in 1941, Meet John Doe, Sergeant York and this one.

He won the Best Actor Academy Award in 1941 for his portrayal of WWl hero Alvin York. He won over Orson Welles who starred in the movie Citizen Kane that year.

Ball of Firedid not win any awards but it won the hearts of the audience this warm June evening in 2003.
