Hooray for Hollywood
Welcome to the Big Celluloid City, Part 1

Artis—Naples Lifelong Learning

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.

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