Dames, Hoodlums and the Depression Film Series

Wild Boys of the Road
Cupertino Library
Cupertino Bluelight Cinema
Thursdays, August 24--September 28, 2017 1:15 pm.
Cupertino Bluelight Cinema5 21275 Stevens Creek Blvd
Host: Mark Larson


 The six films in this series are representative of the early talking films and the Depression which was also the era before the Production Code--a form of corporate artistic self censorship. Studios in these years between 1929 and 1933 had amazing freedom to explore topics that the Code would later  make taboo, such as politics, sex and money, drugs, crime and labor,  The heroes of these films are tough-talking women and the men on the make who love them in stories of working class heroism and the struggle to survive.

 Please join filmmaker and scholar Mark Larson for a survey of this unique and powerful moment in cinematic history. A spirited discussion follows every film. 

Admission is free but space is limited. Please reserve your seats at: http://cupertinolibraryfoundation.org/summer-film-series-2017/

The Films:
Taxi!  (1932) Director: Roy del Ruth  Thursday, August 24, 1:15 pm

Wild Boys of the Road (1933) Director: William Weldman Thursday, August 31, 1:15 pm

42nd Street (1933) Director: Lloyd Bacon  Thursday, September 7, 1:15 pm.
