Cornell Alums Make Movies

A wonderful confluence of Cornell talent exists among these offerings. Robert Schenkkan (MFA, ’77) wrote the original Broadway play All the Way starring Bryan Cranston as LBJ, and then adapted it for the HBO movie of the same name, also starring Cranston, which was produced by Scott Ferguson ’82. Ferguson will be here to present a free screening of it, which will be preceded by two episodes of The Night Of, the hit HBO TV series, starring John Turturro, which Ferguson also produced. The Night Of was created by Steven Zaillian and Cornell alum and writer Richard Price ’71, whose first novel, The Wanderers, set in the Bronx in 1963, was made into a film in 1979; we'll screen a new digital restoration of the film. Events on February 17 will be offered for free and include a reception in between the screenings of The Night Of and All the Way. Cosponsored with the Department of Performing & Media Arts.
