Center for the Arts Hosts Susan Hayward Tribute Film

The Carrollton Center for the Arts will celebrate Oscar winner (and former Carrollton resident) Susan Hayward with a showing of her film, Back Street, January 7.

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.

“We are excited about this opportunity to pay tribute to this remarkable actor who once called Carrollton home,” said Carrollton Arts Superintendent Tim Chapman. “There are still folks here who remember Susan not only as a famous star on the big screen, but as a neighbor, too.”

In Back Street, Hayward co-stars with John Gavin and Vera Miles in the story of a woman caught up in a love triangle.

Tickets are $5 (includes water and popcorn) and can be purchased online at carrolltonarts.com, by phone at 770-838-1083 or at the center’s box office at 251 Alabama Street.
