Hooray for Hollywood
Beauties and Bombshells — Part Two

Artis—Naples Lifelong Learning

Rick Harris, lecturer

The allure of beautiful women has sold tickets throughout movie history. Even as standards have changed, the film industry has made money from female glamour. Primarily focusing on Marilyn Monroe, we will look at such screen goddesses as Rita Hayworth, Mae West, Jean Harlow, Elizabeth Taylor, Carole Lombard, Ingrid Bergman, Bo Derek, Ava Gardner, Betty Grable, Sophia Loren, Lana Turner, Greta Garbo, Jayne Mansfield, Marlene Dietrich and, of course, Shirley Temple.

Rick Harris will present his lectures virtually from his home in New York to a socially distanced audience in The Baker Museum’s new Signature Event Space.

This presentation is part of Rick Harris' Hooray for Hollywood series.

To ensure the health and safety of our patrons, Artis—Naples has established procedures for your visit to the Kimberly K. Querrey and Louis A. Simpson Cultural Campus.
