In our penultimate Jennifer Jones episode, we consider whether Selznick's final production, A FAREWELL TO ARMS (1957), is Hemingway's vision of war or Selznick's, and contemplate Selznick as Auteur. Then we turn to THE BARRETTS OF WIMPOLE STREET (1957), which is not exactly the staid literary costume drama Elise was expecting. The Jones oeuvre continues to intrigue!
