When Mrs. Emily Pollifax's (Rosalind Russell, in her final film role) doctor recommends that she pursue her unfulfilled life ambitions, he doesn't realize that she has always wanted to be a spy. A letter to her congressman and a misunderstanding in an interview with the CIA lands her on a dangerous assignment. This film is based on the novel The Unexpected Mrs. Pollifax by Dorothy Gilman. Viewers are invited to discuss the book and film after the screening. Copies of the book are available in the library’s book and eBook collections. Rated G.
