The St. Louis Public Library, in association with the Webster University Film Series, celebrates the 100th anniversary of American novelist John Steinbeck's birth with a series of adaptations of his work. This week features Emilio Fernandez's The Pearl (1947). Based on Steinbeck's short novel, The Pearl tells the story of a Mexican pearl diver who finds a beautiful specimen, one that changes his life as he imagines the impending wealth it will bring him. Although his wife is more skeptical, she, too, is drawn to the object's magic. Plays at 7 p.m. March 11 at the Central branch of the St. Louis Public Library, 1415 Olive St. NR
