THE GREAT WHITE HOPE - In Person: JANE ALEXANDER
Members: $15 / Public: $20 Includes Screening, Q&A with Discussion and Reception


Join us for a special appearance by Jane Alexander, four-time Academy-Award nominated
actress, and former Director of the National Endowment for the Arts, with a special archivalprint
screening of her film debut, The Great White Hope, for which she earned an Academy Award
Nomination. She had already won Tony for her performance in the original production on Broadway
with James Earl Jones.
Based on Howard Sackler's Broadway play about the life of boxing great Jack Johnson, The
Great White Hope stars James Earl Jones as the first-ever African-American heavyweight
champion who fights racism, hostile fans, and aggressive
promoters to become the top fighter in the world in the early
1900s. However, he finds that he has provoked the anger of the government, labor unions, and
the boxing racket itself because of his race, talent, and his romance with a white woman, Eleanor
(Jane Alexander). Revealing and entertaining, The Great White Hope takes an unflinching look
at racial politics in America. (USA, 1970, 103 min; Director: Martin Ritt)
Ms. Alexander will be interviewed by Foster Hirsch, pioneer in the establishment of
academic film criticism and author of innumerable books, including most recently, "The
Dark Side of the Screen: Film Noir" and "Otto Preminger: The Man Who Would Be King."
