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.

Celebrating 20th Century Fox's 80th Anniversary
A Tribute to Tyrone Power
From 1936 through 1955, Tyrone Power (arguably the most handsome leading actor in motion picture history) was the number one leading man at the 20th Century Fox Studios. Born into a famous, theatrical family – he was actually Tyrone Power III – he started acting at the age of 7. He made his professional debutin 1931 in Chicago. He had a small part playing an old man in his father’s production of The Merchant of Venice. While doing radio work in Chicago, he met and became friends with actor Don Ameche. After Ameche’s success in Hollywood, he invited Tyrone to come to Hollywood and try his luck in films. After two bit parts, he was signed by 20th Century Fox. After one scene in Girl’s Dormitory, the studio was swamped with letters to knoe who the handsome actoer was. Ironically, he next replaced his friend Don Ameche in the Lloyds of London (which we will be showing on April 6th). Overnight, he became Fox’s most popular leading man! For the next 19 years, he starred in some of Fox’s greatest films: Alexander’s Ragtime Band, Jessie James, The Mark of Zorro, The Black Swan, Suez, The Rains Came and others. He starred with some of the most popular actresses of the time: Alice Faye (3 films), Loretta Young (5 films), Gene Tierney (3 films), Rita Hayworth, Betty Grable, Susan Hayward, and Marlene Dietrich. He also starred with actors such as Orson Wells, Don Ameche, Cesar Romero and George Sanders. Again, ironically, Tyrone Power was never nominated for an Academy Award, but his films won more nominations than any other star in the studio’s history!
