Robert Wise got his Hollywood start as a film editor on Citizen Kane, and then branched out into directing. Turns out he was good at just about everything he touched, from musicals to sci-fi and horror, so-called “problem” pictures, historic epics, romance, and much more.

All films are screened in the Stanley H. Durwood Film Vault. Admission is free.
