My Wild Irish Rose

October 16, 2019 | 7:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m.

1947, Color, 101 min

Dennis Morgan, Arlene Dahl, Andrea King, Ben Blue

The life, times and music of the famed Irish tenor, Chauncey Olcott. His rise from a traveling troubadour to a successful composer and Broadway star is traced by the popular Irish songs of the period. Dennis Morgan, at the height of his career, sings his heart out in such songs as “When Irish Eyes Are Smiling: “Mother Machree”, “Wee Rose Of Killarney”, “Wait Till The Sun Shines, Nelly” and the title song.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the film begins at 7:30 p.m.

Movie Time's Fall Schedule: A Patron's Special Request

For over 26 years I have been sharing my 16mm films with patrons of the Charles Allis Art Museum. It has become something very special for me, for over the years I have met many people, some who have become personal friends. Some have followed me from the days when I was showing films at the PAC in downtown Milwaukee and the Gallery Cinema in Bayview. Some have joined my personal film society, “The FOOFS” and some have introduced me to new ventures in my life. So, it is with great pleasure that I will be showing films personally chosen by you, the audience rather than a series selected by me. So, sit back and enjoy a film chosen by one of you. Always, my best. ~ Dale
