The Last of Sheila
Dir. Herbert Ross
US 1973 (120:00)
"It’s the kind of movie that wraps you up in itself, and absorbs you at the very time you’re being impressed by its cleverness." (Roger Ebert)
Glamour. Camp. Murder.
Written by Stephen Sondheim and Anthony Perkins, The Last of Sheila is a devilishly fun thriller dripping in old Hollywood glamour and intrigue. A year after Sheila is killed in a hit-and-run, her multi-millionaire husband invites a group of friends to spend a week on his yacht to playing a scavenger hunt, murdery mystery game. The game turns out to be all too real and all too deadly. The Last of Sheila features an all-star cast of Raquel Welch, Richard Benjamin, Dyan Cannon, James Coburn, James Mason, Joan Hackett and Ian McShane.
Screening begins at dusk at Barbara Hall Park (519 Church Street).
