Stand-In and Footlight Parade

November 16, 2016 @ 7:30 PM - 10:00 PM


UCLA Film & Television Archive and the Hugh M. Hefner Classic American Film Program present “Blonde Crazy: Joan Blondell”

Stand-In (1937), directed by Tay Garnett

When a respected banker (Leslie Howard) is appointed head of a Hollywood film studio on the verge of insolvency, he learns the ropes of the company town from a former-child-star-turned-stand-in (Joan Blondell) who also has a thing or two to teach him about romance. A behind-the-scenes Hollywood comedy with a surprisingly liberal view of labor relations, Stand-In finds Blondell at her most naturally charming.

SCR: Gene Towne, C. Graham Baker. CAST: Leslie Howard, Joan Blondell, Humphrey Bogart

35mm, b/w, 91 mim.

Followed by:

Footlight Parade (1933), directed by Lloyd Bacon

In arguably Warner Bros.’ best backstage musical extravaganza of the era, Joan Blondell gives arguably her best comedic performance. As the long-suffering assistant of James Cagney’s producer of theatrical prologues, Blondell fires off acerbic zingers on the front lines of love and show business.

SCR: Manuel Seff, James Seymour. CAST: James Cagney, Joan Blondell, Ruby Keeler

35mm, b/w, 102 min.

FREE Admission for all UCLA students with valid I.D.
