What better way to prepare for the election season than a classic political film series and discussion? Films introduced by Steve Polansky.

The Mill, A Place for Writers, and the Neenah Public Library present: “Pre-Election Film Series.” The series will present screenings of three classic political films: “A Face in the Crowd,” the 1957 film directed by Elia Kazan and starring Andy Griffith, Patricia Neal, Lee Remick, Walter Matthau; the 1949 classic, “All the King’s Men,” based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Robert Penn Warren and starring Broderick Crawford; and “The Manchurian Candidate,” the chilling 1962 film starring Frank Sinatra, Laurence Harvey, and Angela Lansbury.

Friday, October 25, 6:30 p.m.: All the King’s Men

Friday, November 1, 6:30 p.m.: The Manchurian Candidate
