Just Between Frames film group
Just in time for the craziness of the holidays, JBF film club members are starting their series of "Screwball Comedies". First up, is a classic for this genre -- not least because it was written and scripted by Dashiel Hammet: "The Thin Man." Featuring two of the best character introductions ever put on film, it stars William Powell and Myrna Loy in a screen partnership that has never been equaled -- and their little dog (Asta) too!

(According to Snelson any Lisle Library cardholder can utilize the meeting rooms for non-commercial purposes, as long as it meets the library's criteria.)
