Hooray for Hollywood 2.1

The Films of Myrna Loy and William Powell, Part 1

Friday, February 10, 2023, 10am
John and Jeanne Rowe Performance and Learning Center
Rick Harris, lecturer

As the perfect wife, or as the perfect gentleman, together or separately, Loy and Powell embodied a kind of stylish elegance matched by no other duo. She began as an exotic vamp and became an American ideal. Powell, whether he was a thief or a butler, was ever debonair. Together as Nick and Nora, they sparkled; apart, they remained stellar.

Whether it be Oz, New York or Hollywood, the ambition to go to the big town was both a cinematic liberation and a cautionary danger. The City can be a dream come true or a noir nightmare. In On the Town, Meet Me in St. Louis, The Naked City and innumerable noirs, the Big City lures. Be careful what you wish for.
