Hooray for Hollywood
Welcome to the Big Celluloid City, Part 1
Rick Harris, lecturer
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.
