SCREENING AND TALK:
Forbidden Hollywood: Jewel Robbery 1932
5.30pm Thursday 30 October | GOMA Cinema
Hollywood’s transition from silent to sound cinema in the early 1930s delivered some of the most risqué films seen onscreen until 1934, when the Hollywood studios were forced to adopt a code of moral standards known as the Motion Picture Production Code. Following a screening of the high-spirited Jewel Robbery 1932 (68 mins), join Michael Brooks from Brisbane’s Cine Retro Film Society, in conversation with ‘Forbidden Hollywood: The Wild Days of pre-Code Cinema’ curator Amanda Slack-Smith, Assistant Curator, Australian Cinémathèque, QAGOMA for insights into this fascinating period of Hollywood cinema.
