MOVIES AT THE MUSEUM

"EAMES: THE ARCHITECT AND THE PAINTER." (NR) The husband-and-wife team of Charles and Ray Eames is among America's most important designers. Perhaps best remembered for their mid-century plywood and fiberglass furniture, the Eameses also created in many other arenas, from making splints for wounded soldiers during World War II, to photography, interiors, multi-media exhibits, graphics, games, films and toys. Their personal lives and influence on significant events in American life -- from the development of modernism to the rise of the computer age -- have been less widely understood. Narrated by James Franco.
