    The Magnificent Ambersons (1942, 88 min.) began as Orson Welles's attempt to top Citizen Kane and wound up a magnificent fragment of a family epic, starring Joseph Cotten and Agnes Moorehead. Based on a novel by Booth Tarkington, the film follows the fortunes of a wealthy Midwestern family as they move from the era of sleigh rides to that of automobiles. "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.
