BATH — Patten Free Library’s Winter Film Festival returns Tuesday, Feb. 2, with the 1940 feature “Kitty Foyle.”

The opener of the series – which runs at the 33 Summer St. library over seven Tuesdays – was co-written by Dalton Trumbo, who was blacklisted by major studios in 1947 after being convicted of contempt of Congress for not testifying before the House Un-American Activities Committee, according to a library press release.

The 2015 film “Trumbo” earned actor Bryan Cranston Golden Globe and Oscar nominations for his portrayal of the title character. “Kitty Foyle” features Ginger Rogers, who plays a non-dancing but hard-working Philadelphia girl who falls for socialite Wyn Strafford, played by Dennis Morgan.
