“…One Third of a Nation…”

7:30 p.m. in the Library of Congress Packard Theater, 19053 Mount Pony Rd. in Culpeper. Adapted from a controversial play originally produced by the Federal Theatre Project (part of the WPA), this Depression-era film from 1939 contrasts the lifestyles of tenement dwellers with the existence of the upper class in New York City. Wealthy Peter Cortlant (Leif Erickson) learns that he has inherited a block of slum tenements. In one of these dwellings, a raging fire had crippled young Joey Rogers (future director Sidney Lumet). Cortlant meets the boy sometime after the fire and eventually falls in love with his older sister Mary (Sylvia Sidney). Film was shot in the New York slum district to give it the realism needed to convey its message. The title came from Franklin D. Roosevelt’s second inaugural address in which he stated “I see one-third of a nation ill-housed, ill-clad, ill-nourished.” No reservations taken. Free. Request ADA accommodations at least five days in advance at 202/707-6362 or ADA@loc.gov. Children 12 and younger must be accompanied by an adult.
