An Evening With Claire Bloom, Sat 14th Oct @ 7:30opm
The Cinema Museum is pleased to welcome Claire Bloom CBE for an evening discussing her career on stage, film and television with Jonathan Rigby.
Claire Bloom made her stage debut at 15, and was soon appearing as Ophelia in Hamlet opposite Paul Schofield, and in Christopher Fry’s The Lady’s Not For Burning with John Gielgud and a young Richard Burton. Other notable appearances were in Look Back in Anger, Romeo and Juliet, Hedda Gabler, and as Blanche DuBois in a London revival of A Streetcar Named Desire, which was much admired by author Tennessee Williams.

She has appeared on screen in a great number of films, including Richard III (1955), Look Back in Anger (1958), The Haunting (1963), The Spy Who Came in from the Cold (1965), A Doll’s House (1973), Clash of the Titans (1981), Sammy and Rosie Get Laid (1987), Crimes and Misdemeanors (1989) and The King’s Speech(2010).
