The Carrollton Center for the Arts will celebrate Oscar winner (and former Carrollton resident) Susan Hayward with a showing of her film, The Honey Pot, January 8.
“We welcome this annual opportunity to honor the work of a star who some folks here still also remember as a neighbor,” said Carrollton Arts Superintendent Tim Chapman.
Hayward lived in Carrollton with her husband, local businessman Eaton Chalkley, from 1957 until 1966. She won the Academy Award for her role in 1958’s I Want To Live! while living here and was presented with the key to the city upon her return to Carrollton from the Oscar ceremonies. The center hosts a showing of one of her films each year in January.
In The Honey Pot, Venice millionaire Cecil Fox (Sir Rex Harrison) pranks three greedy ex-girlfriends into thinking he’s dying and leaving his fortune to one of them. Hayward plays Mrs. Lone Star Crockett Sheridan, a Texas hypochondriac. Tickets are available at carrolltonarts.com, at the center’s box office or by calling (770) 838-1083.
