Getty Research Center fetes Zinnemann

Screening series to coincide with the 60th anniversary of 'High Noon'

The Getty Research Center is mounting a tribute to “High Noon” helmer Fred Zinnemann this month with a screening series to coincide with the 60th anniversary of the landmark Western.

“Fred Zinnemann: Cinema of Resistance” will offer free Tuesday night screenings and Q&As with film scholars and bizzers who worked with the iconoclastic helmer, who died at age 89 in 1997.

The series, held at the Getty Center’s Harold M. Williams Auditorium, begins this week with 1944’s Nazi drama “The Seventh Cross,” with thesp Marsha Hunt among the participants. The 1948 Holocaust survivors drama “The Search” unspools on April 10, followed on April 17 by “High Noon” (1952) and on April 24 by the Vanessa Redgrave-Jane Fonda starrer “Julia” (1977).

Zinnemann’s son, helmer-producer Tim Zinnemann, and Maria Cooper Janis, daughter of Gary Cooper, will be on hand for the unspooling of “High Noon” (for which her father earned an Oscar).

“Julia” screenwriter Alvin Sargent and editor Walter Murch will take part in the final sesh.
