A companion to the exhibit “World War II in Photographs,” the McNay’s “WWII in Film” series wraps up with a screening of Fred Zinnemann’s 1948 war drama The Search, starring Montgomery Clift and Aline MacMahon. Shot in Germany, the film tells the story of an American army engineer who takes in a homeless Czech boy separated from his mother after both were sent to a Nazi concentration camp. Thought to be killed in a gas chamber, the mother is, in fact, alive and looking for her son. The Search was nominated for four Oscars, winning one for Best Writing, Motion Picture Story.
