George Clooney, MoMA’s 2020 film benefit honoree, has crafted an enviable career: his effortless charm both onscreen and off, and serious dedication to his craft, both in front of and behind the camera has been encapsulated in TV and film for audiences around the world.  On the eve of the release of his seventh directorial effort, The Midnight Sky, we are pleased to offer our members a look back at three of his earlier films.
