Classic film series to screen ‘The Whole Town Is Talking’ in Auburn

The Silver Screen Classic Movie Series continues on Aug. 5 with the 1935 classic, “The Whole Town Is Talking.” Audiences of the 1930s thought they understood what they were getting when they first saw actor Edward G. Robinson on the screen, yet he surprised them half way through the film. Critics say he played his expected bad guy to perfection, of course. But he also played the good guy — the good guy who fools the audience, the woman who loves him and the foolish bad guy who underestimates this seemingly ineffectual meek clerk.

Screenings will be at noon, 4 and 7:30 p.m. on Aug. 5 in the Beecher Room of the Auburn Library, 350 Nevada St. in Auburn. Presented by the library, the movie is free. For information, call 530-878-7938 or visit
