The Heiress (1949, 1hr 56m)
A graceful drawing-room drama, and winner of four Academy Awards including Best Original Score, The Heiress is a riveting character study imbued with emotional uncertainty and lacerating cruelty, in a triumph of classic Hollywood filmmaking at its most psychologically nuanced. Directed by William Wyler and starring Olivia de Havilland, Montgomery Clift, and Ralph Richardson, it was selected for preservation by the Library of Congress in 1996 and features an original score by long-time Tanglewood faculty member Aaron Copland. Post-screening Q&A with Michael Boriskin, Artistic and Executive Director of Copland House.
