The 1950s were a fascinating time for Hollywood films. Several directors who began their careers in the silent era (Wilder, Hitchcock, Wyler) were in their prime; the studio system was in decline and independent films were gaining a foothold; exciting new stars such as Marlon Brando, Montgomery Clift, James Dean and Audrey Hepburn were making their mark; vital issues of the time such as juvenile delinquency, conformity, and racial attitudes were addressed, however timidly, while the shadow of the Hollywood blacklist loomed. Rick will show clips from several films of various genres from that era and discuss their significance, featuring both well-known titles such as ROMAN HOLIDAY and ON THE WATERFRONT and some lesser-known films such as NIGHT OF THE HUNTER and TOUCH OF EVIL.
