CCHS movie night
    The Clinton County Historical Society will show the 1944 drama “Since You Went Away” on Friday, Dec. 13, at its museum in Carlyle.
    This David O. Selznick (producer of “Gone With the Wind”) film is set in an American town near a military base.
    Claudette Colbert, who plays an upper middle-class housewife along with her two teenage daughters — played by Jennifer Jones and Shirley Temple — must cope with the absence of Claudette’s husband who has volunteered to serve in the Army during World War II.
    With a tight budget, the wife is forced to take on two boarders.   
    The movie shows how the makeshift household pulls together through homefront hardships.
    This picture was nominated for nine Academy Awards including Best Picture. It is often shown near the holiday season because of a great Christmas scene with the songs “Ave Maria,” “Silent Night,” “Jingle Bells” and “O Come All Ye Faithful” playing in the background.
    Doors open at 6 p.m. and the movie begins at 6:30 p.m. There is a silent auction before the film and during intermission. Popcorn is provided, but bring your own beverage. Admission is free.
