NORMAN — The Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art, 555 Elm, will screen two classic films that premiered in 1946, the year the museum's current exhibition “Art Interrupted” made its debut. Patrons are invited to view the films in conjunction with the exhibition, which closes June 9.
The museum will show Alfred Hitchcock's “Notorious” at 6 p.m. Friday. Following the conviction of her German father for treason against the United States, a woman is approached by a government agent who asks her to spy on a group of her father's Nazi friends operating out of Rio de Janeiro.
Orson Welles' “The Stranger” will be shown at 6 p.m. May 17. The World War II-era film focuses on an investigator from the War Crimes Commission who travels to Connecticut to find an infamous Nazi.
“Art Interrupted: Advancing American Art and the Politics of Cultural Diplomacy,” was drawn from the permanent collections of 10 museums, private collectors and other public institutions. It includes most of the original works from “Advancing American Art,” an exhibition assembled by the U.S. State Department to show the world America's artistic coming of age.
