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
Actually, Fox’s 80th Anniversary was last year, but due to previous scheduling we had to wait until this year. Of all the major Hollywood studios, Fox is the newest one. The others all started in the 1910s and 1920s. 20th Century Fox came into existence in 1935, when Darryl F. Zanuck, head of 20th Century Pictures, merged with the old Fox Studios. Zanuck then became head of 20th Century Fox – a position he held until the late 1960s! By 1942, Zanuck elevated his studio to number two in Hollywood, second only to the powerhouse MGM. Being a writer himself, Zanuck always thought the story was the most important thing. He therefore hired only the best screen writers and purchased best-selling novels for filmization. He was the first studio head to understand the importance of Technicolor. One of the reasons for his success was his early use of color, beginning with 1936 version of Ramona, starring Loretta Young and Don Ameche. His other success was his staple of stars. Although he had the smallest number of stars, he made them all into popular, big name stars. Stars like Tyrone Power, Loretta Young, Alice Fay, Don Ameche, Betty Grable, Sonja Henie, Linda Darnell, John Payne, Clifton Webb, and even in the later years, Marilyn Monroe! So for the next year, we will be celebrating 20th Century Fox’s 80th Anniversary with some of the best of Fox’s 80 years!
