Milwaukee film historian Dale Kuntz presents selections from his rare collection of classic films from the 30s and 40's. Films are shown on 16mm, reel-to-reel film. Most of these cinematic treasures are not available on DVD so don't miss this opportunity to see these films in their original glory on the big screen. Prior to each screening, Dale fascinates the audience with his knowledge of film history, giving the inside scoop on each film, including bizarre details about the stars and clues to help the audience spot little oddities that ended up in the film instead of on the cutting room floor.
In the 1930’s and 1940’s, they were called “Weepers”, “Soap Operas” and “Women’s Films”. YES… Ginger was a bigger star than Fred – Jeanette than Nelson and Greer Garson far over-shadowed Walter Pidgeon! Whatever they were called – they were a mainstay in films for over three decades. We are presenting some of the best… some classic stories, a tear-jerker or two and even a musical. All of them featuring some of the most popular and beloved female stars of their era. But, we are not overlooking some of the most popular male stars too! Handsome heroes like Alan Ladd, Charles Boyer, Dana Andrews and even Orson Wells will share the screen with our lovely ladies. Whatever the story line, we are calling them “Romantic Dramas”. Warning: you might want to bring a handkerchief for one or two of these dramas!
