MOVIE TIME

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.

Sonja Henie – A Winter Olympics Festiva
l

2018 Winter Olympics will be held in South Korea, beginning in February. To celebrate the Olympics – we bring you films starring the most famous Olympic woman figure skating star… Sonja Henie! Born in Norway, she won her first World Champion Award at the age of 14. She won the Gold Medal in the Winter Olympics of 1928 – 1932, and 1936. The only woman figure skater to win three Gold Medals in three different years! Henie loved American movies ­and wanted to become a movie star. To this end, she formed her own ice show. This was the first Ice Ballet ever done in the world. She then brought her Ice Show to Los Angeles hoping to land a movie contract. After several offers for a cameo role, she signed with 20th Century-Fox Studios. She insisted on a story featuring her and to get top-billing. Darryl Zanuck agreed and signed her for $75,000 a picture! Halfway into production, Zanuck realized that the ice ballets were the heart of the film and wanted one more production number. Henie said yes, but it cost the studio another $25,000! Zanuck agreed and she became the highest paid actress I Hollywood. The film “One in a Million”, was a gigantic hit and brought two million dollars to the Studio. In the late 1930’s, she surpassed Shirley Temple as Fox’s leading star.
