disagreements over everything from Syria to the United Nations, there is
no disagreement about screening some of the best movies Russia has to
Tonight's offering is Gentlemen of Fortune, a
kindergarten director, a very kind man and a
talented teacher, finds himself chasing a stolen treasure. Not for his
own profit, but with a noble aim: using his likeness to a dangerous thief (who
stole the helmet of Alexander the Great) to find and return the treasure to his
country. Our gentle hero has to work and live with a band of thieves, and
this comic tale makes this film one of Russia’s favorite all-time comedies.
Beverages and light refreshments will be
served. This program is supported through funding from the Friends of
the Morristown & Morris Township Library.
