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.

A Tribute to Alexander Korda
While his name may not be as famous as Frank Capra or Alfred Hitchcock, Alexander Korda is known as the "David O. Selznick of England." Like Selznick and Samuel Goldwyn, Korda only produced one or two films per year! Each was prestigious, and they are some of the most beautiful films ever seen. Korda was born in 1893 in Budapest while it was still part of the Austrian-Hungarian Empire. He was working on films in Berlin when the Nazis came to power, causing him to move to London. There he formed his own company called London Films with its famous logo fo Big Ben. Accompanying him were his two brothers Zolton and Vincent. Zolton was a fellow director, while Vincent was an art director who designed most of Korda's films. This great success was The Private Life of Henry VIII (1932). A great part of his success was due to the stars he was able to put under contract. Stars like Charles Laughton, Merle Oberon (who he later married), Leslie Howard, Robert Donat, Conrad Veidt, Flora Robson, Vivien Leigh, and Laurance Olivier. As a matter of fact, Korda first introduced Leigh to Olivier when they were making Fire Over England - which we will be showing October 21. When World War II broke out and London was being bombed, Korda moved his film operatioin to Hollywood. Once the war was over, he and his brothers moved back. His last film was Olivier's Richard II (1956).
