Movies. Allan Dwan and the Rise and Decline of the Hollywood Studios. MoMA New York. From June 5–July 8, 2013. Great event, if you have the chance, don’t miss it, Yareah friends!
Allan Dwan’s (1885–1981) 50-year career as a director (from 1911 to 1961), which resulted in over 400 films, encompasses the history of the classic American movie industry. MoMA presented a major retrospective of Dwan’s films in 1971, and while another exhibition was certainly due after 42 years, this series was prompted by the publication of Frederic Lombardi’s Allan Dwan and the Rise and Decline of the Hollywood Studios.
The Museum of Modern Art 11 West 53 Street, New York, NY 10019 http://www.moma.org/
Mr. Lombardi will be present for a book signing at 6:30 on Wednesday, June 5. He introduces The Iron Mask that night, and will return to introduce other films during the series. All films are from the U.S. and directed by Allan Dwan.
Bernie Anderson will provide piano accompaniment for screenings from June 5–9. Ben Model will provide piano accompaniment for screenings from June 10–20.
Organized by Charles Silver, Curator, Department of Film, The Museum of Modern Art, and Frederic Lombardi.
