Come Back to the 5 & Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean
Independent films, Hollywood rarities, classic television, and documentaries are all part of the UCLA Film&Television Archive’s annual festival highlighting recent restorations from its world-renowned preservation department. Help welcome this program of touring highlights to the Wexner Center. Catch as many films as you can, and show your support for film preservation.

Many classic films are just as powerful today as when they were first released. We add such films from many genres to our schedule throughout the season. Many are shown on the occasion of their rereleases, in fresh, new or restored prints.
Based on a play originally staged in Columbus, Come Back stars Sandy Dennis, Cher, and Karen Black as members of a James Dean fan club who have assembled for a 20-year reunion of the production of Giant in 1955.
The film marked Robert Altman’s break with Hollywood and turn towards more independent filmmaking. (109 mins., 35mm)
Ed Graczyk, the author of the original play and Columbus resident, will join us for a Q & A after the screening. The play was first staged in Columbus.
