Miracle Worker

If you've been sitting out Ragtag's essential series of Preston Sturges films and are considering one film, make it The Miracle of Morgan's Creek, the funniest, craziest, and most subversive stroke of brilliance by Sturges and his family of actors. Noted for undermining the arbitrary, laughable Production Code standards set by Hollywood's self-censoring organization, the Hays Office (1930-1968), it inspired Nation critic James Agee to famously proclaim that the Office had been "raped in its sleep."

The Miracle of Morgan's Creek shows on Thursday, May 14 at 7:00 PM.
