Screening of Cheaper by the Dozen

Date: Mon, 04/16/2018
Time: 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Location: Main Library - YA Room
Categories: Adult Events

Come and enjoy a screening of the classic movie Cheaper by the Dozen starring Clifton Webb, Myrna Loy, and Jeanne Crane (1950, 86 minutes, black & white).

The movie is based on the real-life story of the Gilbreth family, follows them from Providence, Rhode Island to Montclair, New Jersey, and details the amusing anecdotes found in large families. Frank Gilbreth, Sr., was a pioneer in the field of motion study, and often used his family as guinea pigs with amusing and sometimes embarrassing results. He resisted popular culture, railing against his daughters’ desires for bobbed hair and cosmetics.

This event is part of our community-wide read: Montclair Reads Cheaper By the Dozen.
