October 27
Monday, 7:00 pm

Join the Regina and District Jewish Association and RPL Film Theatre for a free screening of The Outrageous Sophie Tucker, the first showing in the 2nd Annual Jewish Film Series, taking place throughout the fall. Refreshments will be served.

The rags to riches story of Sophie Tucker, an iconic superstar who ruled the worlds of vaudeville, Broadway, radio, television, and Hollywood throughout the 20th century. Before BeyoncĂ©, Lady Gaga, Madonna, Bette Midler, Marilyn Monroe, and Mae West, Sophie Tucker was the first woman to infatuate her audiences with a bold, bawdy and brassy style unlike any other. Using all of “The Last of the Red Hot Mamas” 400-plus recently rediscovered personal scrapbooks, authors Susan and Lloyd Ecker take you on their seven-year journey retracing Tucker’s sixty-year career in show business.

“The gorgeous scene stealer in this gentle-spirited road movie is the country of Iceland, depicted in breathtaking wide-angle shots by cinematographer Andrew Reed. Providing the camera with a reason to be there is the story of Mitch (Earl Lynn Nelson) and Colin (Paul Eenhoorn), two aging friends and former brother-in-law on a quest to ‘get our groove back.’ Funded by the more deep-pocketed Mitch, the trip itinerary has them eating high-end restaurants…staying in boutique hotels and traversing the countryside in a rented SUV. The bombastic Kentuckian Mitch takes the lead…Colin, still unsteady after the death of his wife some months earlier, reluctantly agrees – because it’s obviously nearly impossible to say no to Mitch, a weed-smoking, profanity-spewing horndog in adorable-grandpa camouflage.” New York Post
