Things to do this weekend for (mostly) free
Free screening of Spellbound at the Mid-Manhattan library Sunday. Ingrid Bergman is (say it with me) an icy, unapproachable blonde (what are the odds) freudian psychiatrist who falls for amnesiac patient Gregory Peck and runs off with him to analyze his nightmares and prove he didn't kill anybody. His nightmares were designed by Salvador Dali, and they're full of eyeballs and scissors and ominous melting round things.
