CINEMA ’62: THE GREATEST YEAR AT THE MOVIES
FREE LIVESTREAM CONVERSATION
Lawrence of Arabia, The Manchurian Candidate, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Miracle Worker, Days of Wine and Roses, Lolita, The Music Man, Sweet Bird of Youth, and the list goes on and on, including foreign-language films by Bergman, Kurosawa, and others. Was 1962 the greatest year at the movies? The sheer volume of important and mature works released that year is extraordinary.
Authors Stephen Farber and Michael McClellan will participate in a special discussion event to celebrate their new book. Joining them will be Philip Kaufman, one of America’s greatest filmmakers (whose career began after 1962), and Katherine Haber, production executive associated with Blade Runner and several films by Sam Peckinpah (Peckinpah’s Ride the High Country is one of the films that will be discussed).
STEPHEN FARBER is a past president of the Los Angeles Film Critics Association and currently serves as a faculty member at UCLA. He has written for numerous publications, including the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, and The Hollywood Reporter. He has also published several earlier books, including Outrageous Conduct: Art, Ego, and the Twilight Zone Case and Hollywood on the Couch.
MICHAEL MCCLELLAN is the former Senior Vice President/Head Film Buyer for Landmark Theatres and served on the board of appeals of the Classification and Ratings Administration of the MPAA. He currently co-produces a classic film series in Los Angeles.
