Breadlines and Champagne

For a fascinating, in depth look at depression era entertainment, check out Breadlines and Champagne--a series of depression era movies that will be screened at the Film Forum from February 6-March 5. The series will screen 50 movies over the course of four weeks, many of which deal with issues that are particularly relevant today: unemployment, corruption and banking crises. You'll also get to watch the work of some amazing actors and directors--Mae West, Frank Capra, Barbara Stanwyck, Clark Gable and Ginger Rogers, to name a few.
