Steel Magnolias
The title refers to those seemingly frail Southern belles who survive any and all deprivations through whims of iron. Robert Harling's original stage play was set exclusively in a Louisiana beauty parlor where an all-female cast of characters laughed, cried and compared men folk. The film expands the playing field by including scenes at picnics, hospitals and the like, and by visually depicting the males who never appeared in the stage version. Dolly Parton plays the good-natured beauty-shop owner, while Shirley MacLaine is the cantankerous town eccentric, decked out in grungy overalls and speaking fluent Trash. Well-to-do Sally Field bravely endures several assaults to her sensibilities, not the least of which is the illness of daughter Julia Roberts.

The Daily Journal will sponsor a spring film series at the Meadowview Theatre. The second film in the series is Steel Magnolias on Thursday, April 3 at 7:00 p.m. Admission is $5 at the door.
