Gone to Earth in 35mm

Gone to Earth in 35mm

Her bare feet traipsing across the late 19th century English countryside, free-spirited Hazel Woodus (Jennifer Jones) is happiest when tending to her animals. After meeting two men of equal intrigue, she leaves her future to fate by agreeing to marry the first suitor who proposes, tearing her between the virtuous Edward (Cyril Cusack) and the volatile Jack (David Farrar). Unhappily co-produced by Jones’s husband David O. Selznick, the original version of this vivid picture was drastically cut and scenes reshot by director Rouben Mamoulian, and was then re-released under the title The Wild Heart in 1952. This screening will showcase the version of the film as originally envisioned by The Archers.
