The Alameda Free Library presents “Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter?” for free at 5:30 p.m. today, Sept. 23, at the Main Library.
The film starts Tony Randall as an advertising exec and Jane Mansfield as a movie queen who is asked to endorse a new lipstick; it was made in 1957, after being staged first as a Broadway show.
The film was a big hit and is considered one of Mansfield’s best performances.
Next month, the library presents “The Devil’s Backbone,” set during the Spanish Civil War, on Monday, Oct. 14.
This week, the library is hosting a special event tied to Banned Book Week.
Community members are invited to read out loud for up to 30 minutes through this Saturday, Sept. 28, at 5 p.m.
