A Tribute To Eva Marie Saint


Discuss this series with other film fans on:



Eva Marie Saint studied theater at Ohio’s Bowling Green University and soon after began finding work in radio and television in early 1950’s New York. Her star quickly rose when she was cast as Edie Doyle opposite Marlon Brando’s Terry Malloy in ON THE WATERFRONT, a role that won her an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress. More diverse roles followed, allowing Saint to demonstrate her versatility and consummate professionalism, from the Actor’s Studio-style pyrotechnics of Fred Zinnemann’s HATFUL OF RAIN and John Frankenheimer’s ALL FALL DOWN to all-star epics like Edward Dmytryk’s RAINTREE COUNTY and Otto Preminger’s EXODUS to thrillers like Alfred Hitchcock’s NORTH BY NORTHWEST (where she reinvented herself with a glamorous new persona) and Irvin Kershner’s superb comedy-drama, LOVING. She recently co-starred in the family film BECAUSE OF WINN-DIXIE for director Wayne Wang and plays Martha Kent in Warner Brothers’ highly anticipated SUPERMAN RETURNS from director Bryan Singer which opens in June. We are enormously pleased to welcome Eva Marie Saint for this in-person tribute, including a sneak preview of her latest film, Wim Wender’s DON’T COME KNOCKING.

A Tribute To Eva Marie Saint

Sneak Preview:

DON’T COME KNOCKING!, 2006, Sony Classics, 122 min. Director Wim Wenders (WINGS OF DESIRE; PARIS, TEXAS) uses memories, relationships, images and emotions to bring to life the vivid and sensitive human characters in his films, individuals experiencing frightening and honest moments of enlightenment. Howard Spence (Sam Shepard, who also wrote the screenplay) used to be one of Hollywood’s biggest stars, a leading man specializing in westerns. Approaching 60, he suddenly decides he’s had all he can take and absconds from the set of his latest film. Staying with his mother (Eva Marie Saint), he learns he may have a child in Butte, Montana, the fruit of a brief tryst with waitress, Doreen (Jessica Lange). Arriving in Butte just before the detective (Tim Roth) who was hired to bring him back to the movie set, Spence tries to piece together his past and lost dreams. However, he finds not only hostility from son, Earl (Gabriel Mann) but has a further surprise in store, a young woman (Sarah Polley) named Sky, who might just be another member of his scattered, dysfunctional family. Discussion following with actress Eva Marie Saint.

A Tribute To Eva Marie Saint

THE RUSSIANS ARE COMING, THE RUSSIANS ARE COMING, 1966, Sony Repertory, 126 min. Director Norman Jewison’s warm-hearted satire tracks the crew of a Russian sub (headed up by a delightful Alan Arkin, Theodore Bikel and John Philip Law) who inadvertentaly scuttle their craft on the beach of Gloucester Island, sending the local inhabitants – all of them possessed of Cold War paranoia – into a tizzy. Carl Reiner and Eva Marie Saint head a phemonenal cast as the Whitakers, a couple who interact with the accidental invaders, with Brian Keith as the police chief, Jonathan Winters as his clueless deputy and Paul Ford as a pompous, retired military officer. Discussion following with actress Eva Marie Saint.



Sunday, March 12 – 6:30 PM

A Tribute To Eva Marie Saint – Double Feature:

LOVING, 1970, Columbia (Sony Repertory), 89 min. Dir. Irvin Kershner. Successfull illustrator, Brooks (George Segal) gets the approaching-middle- age-blues, and it impacts everyone around him, especially his lovely wife, Selma (Eva Marie Saint) as well as his two daughters and his mistress (Janis Young). With great support from Sterling Hayden, Keenan Wynn. "…in the direction of actors, judgment about scenes, and everything that happens in the camera…a fine and gratifying film." – Roger Greenspun, New York Times.

>> Also playing at the Egyptian, March 15.

ALL FALL DOWN, 1962, Warner Bros., 111 min. Dir. John Frankenheimer. "Male enough to attract a dozen women...not man enough to be faithful to one!" Warren Beatty is Berry-Berry, an abusive, ne’er-do-well womanizer and bar-brawler extraordinaire, a guy who will go anywhere and do anything for easy bucks, drinks and a laugh. When his younger brother, Clint (Brandon de Wilde), shows up in Key West to bail him out of jail, a chain of events is set in motion that will bring Berry-Berry back home to Ohio and his dysfunctional parents (Karl Malden and Angela Lansbury). A love affair with a different kind of girl, Echo O’Brien (Eva Marie Saint), seems about to change him for the better – until he finds out a secret from her past. Playwright, William Inge (SPLENDOR IN THE GRASS) ably adapts James Leo Herlihy’s novel. NOT ON VIDEO!
