The Yearling (1946, 128 min.) is set in rural Florida after the Civil War. Clarence Brown's family classic adapts Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings's novel and stars Gregory Peck and Jane Wyman. The film won an Oscar for cinematography; a special "Juvenile Oscar" was awarded to Claude Jarman, Jr., who plays a boy enamored of his adopted pet fawn.
"Homericana: Films of the Artist's Times and Places" is a free film series offered by the Clark in conjunction with its Winslow Homer exhibition. Film screenings will be shown Monday afternoons at 3 pm in July and August and will alternate each week between feature films set in Homer's era and an expansive documentary on his life and work.
