HOLLYWOOD HOME MOVIES

SATURDAY, JANUARY 17  •  7:15
PRESENTED BY THE ACADEMY OF MOTION PICTURE ARTS AND SCIENCES
& THE CALIFORNIA FILM INSTITUTE

Hosted by: Lynne Kirste, Special Collections Curator, Academy Film Archive
& Randy HaberkampManaging Director, Preservation and Foundation Programs

Live Piano Accompaniment by Michael Mortilla

Join us for an entertaining evening of rare footage culled by the Academy Film Archive from the private collections of Hollywood stars and directors. The home movie craze across America extended to Hollywood professionals, who captured not only their families and friends, but behind-the-scenes activities on their sets as well.

The Academy Film Archive houses a wide variety of such films and will present a selection of excerpts, including footage of Constance Bennett, Gary Cooper, Clark Gable, Betty Grable, Celeste Holm, Vivien Leigh, Jerry Lewis, Victor Mature, Steve McQueen, Esther Ralston and Loretta Young. Kirste will also introduce footage from a Hollywood costume party featuring Marion Davies, Bette Davis, Irene Dunne, Carole Lombard, Harold Lloyd, Jack Oakie and many others. The program will also include rare behind-the-scenes footage from the set of Gone with the Wind, as well as clips of the 1967 San Francisco Peace March.

Because home movies are silent by definition, Los Angeles-based musician Michael Mortilla will improvise piano accompaniment. (Please note that this program is entirely different from our Hollywood Home Movies show presented in December 2013.) Approximately 2 hours.
