CONCURRENT SPECIAL PROGRAMS

SOUNDIES AND JUKEBOX SHORTS OF THE 1940’S

SATURDAY, SEPT 3RD – 11AM  (90 MIN SESSION)

HOLLYWOOD HERITAGE MUSEUM – 2100 N. HIGHLAND

The 1940s saw a brief if audacious experiment in mass entertainment: a jukebox with a screen. Patrons would insert a dime, then listen to and watch a three-minute musical short. Our special program explores this long-forgotten niche in entertainment and cultural history with a variety of both Soundies as well as the products of its many competitors. Among the films that will be shared in this program are several rarities, some one-of-a-kind. Join us for 90 minutes of entertainment and delight in the music of such artists as Nat “King” Cole, Duke Ellington, Merle Travis, Louis Jordan, Henny Youngman, Kay Starr, and many more. Hosted by jazz-on-film expert Mark Cantor, whose forthcoming essay The Soundies will undoubtedly be the definitive reference book on this subject when it is released this fall.

PROPERTY MASTERS GUILD PRESENTATION

SUNDAY, SEPT 4RD – 11:30AM  (60 MIN SESSION)

HOLLYWOOD HERITAGE MUSEUM – 2100 N. HIGHLAND

Select members of the Property Masters Guild will make up a lively panel of experts that will be presenting a “show & tell” with actual vintage props used in silent films as well as in recent period films. Juxtaposing props like the Dracula Bat (1930), which was made out of rabbit fur and rubber and was operated with strings, to animatronic reptiles and mammals that were made for Babylon (2022). This will be followed by a screening of The Property Man (1914) starring Charlie Chaplin. The film will include live musical accompaniment by pianist Adam Swanson. Presented by festival sponsor History For Hire.
