Event Details: On April 8th at 8PM at the Avalon (5612 Connecticut Ave, NW), Ben Mankiewicz (TCM’s weekend daytime host) and producer George Stevens Jr. (founding director of the American Film Institute and co-producer of the Kennedy Center Honors) will introduce THE MORE THE MERRIER (1943), a highly entertaining film directed by Stevens’ father.  Jean Arthur and Joel McCrea star as a pair forced to share a D.C. apartment during a wartime housing shortage.  Charles Coburn won an Oscar for his deliciously comic performance.  This is a unique opportunity for our DC film buffs to screen a classic on the big screen and hear directly from experts Ben and George on the making of the movie.
