Thanks. But to clarify, there are just two evenings on women film pioneers. The month-long spotlight for November is actually The Art of Casting.

I see they are playing some films I did not expect, like "Blume In Love". I thought for sure it would be "Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf" (his sole Oscar nomination, so far) or "No Way To Treat A Lady" where he played the cop harassed by serial killer Rod Steiger.

He is a very underrated actor, glad to see him getting some recognition.
