FASHION IN FILM OF TCMFF 2020 - Special Home Edition

Guest speaker
Online via Zoom webinar
4 pm - 5:30 pm PT (7 pm - 8:30 pm ET)

Tickets are $5 - click here to register through Zoom

Since this year's TCM Classic Film Festival (TCMFF) is now a "Special Home Edition," I thought it was important to offer the same for my own annual event. And so, on Wednesday, April 15, I invite you all to join me in a online version of Fashion in Film of TCMFF 2020.

The presentation will feature 11 films - 5 from the festival's on air programming, and 6 more from festivals past. As always you will enjoy beautiful movie stills and images from today's fashion accompanied by a conversation about film history, costume and fashion designers, and backstories of the stars.

Most know that costume design is often integral to plot lines and always helps establish character. In addition, many of the leading ladies were close with their costume designers, so you can get great insights into their lives and see the evolution of their style. You'll also discover how these costumes continue to influence fashion today.

This year's presentation will include:

Red-Headed Woman (1932)
Shanghai Express (1932)
Baby Face (1933)
Holiday (1938)
The Philadelphia Story (1940)
The Lady Eve (1941)
Casablanca (1942)
A Foreign Affair (1948)
Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953)
Some Like It Hot (1959)
Network (1976)

**This event is not affiliated with the TCM Classic Film Festival.

**This series may continue in 2020

Series starts Sunday, June 30, 2019

Talks start at 1:00 pm 
followed by double features of films

Guest speaker
Egyptian Theatre
Hollywood, CA

The Pre-Code era of Hollywood refers to the years between 1930 when the Production Code was adopted and 1934 when it was in full effect. The Code prohibited seeing many sins on screen, so Pre-Code films are beloved for how risqué and provocative they could be with their look and content.

Join me for this 6-part series that introduces you to some of the most popular actresses of the Pre-Code era - Barbara Stanwyck, Kay Francis, Jean Harlow, Carole Lombard, Marlene Dietrich, Joan Blondell, and Joan Crawford. Each event will begin with one of my presentations followed by a double feature of films. There will be one event per month. 

Though costume design is important in film, it is particularly significant to the plot and production of the movies selected for this series. In each talk, you will also learn about the costume designers themselves - how they contributed to the style of the studios along with the evolution of the actresses' careers and personal style.
