The film series at the Fairfield Public Library featuring Scoundrels in Film continues, Nov. 3 with The Onion Field (1979), from 6:45 to 9:15 p.m., at the Main Library, 1080 Old Post Road.

The Webster dictionary defines a "scoundrel" as a wicked or evil person: someone who does evil deliberately. Throughout the history of movies there have been many unsavory villains and we will explore four actors who personify evil.

The series is hosted by Artie Weissman, who has been a Trumbull/Fairfield resident for the past 16 years. Weissman has taken various courses on film and has led a film series at Congregation B'nai Israel over the last seven years. He is an enthusiastic and knowledgeable film commentator.

Join the Fairfield Library and explore just what makes these notorious characters tick and why it is more interesting to watch a deplorable character on screen than a heroic one. All programs at the Fairfield Public Library are free of charge.

The series wraps up on Dec. 15 with Strangers on a Train (1951).
