Sep 10 2022
Film: Man of La Mancha (1972)

Join Frist Art Museum for a screening of Man of La Mancha, presented in conjunction with the exhibition Knights in Armor with a special introduction by Sarah Childress.

This film adaptation of the Tony Award–winning musical stars Peter O’Toole and Sophia Loren and is based on the life of sixteenth-century Spanish writer Miguel de Cervantes and his signature work, Don Quixote. In the volatile days of the Spanish Inquisition, Cervantes and his squire make a living as traveling players, but soon find themselves imprisoned after being accused of crimes against the church. Now, facing the wrath of their fellow inmates as well as the inquisitors, Cervantes must persuade the unruly bunch not to burn his prized manuscript by performing it for them.

PG. 132 minutes.
