Breadlines and Champagne at Film Forum


Great art thrives in tough times, and one of the golden eras of Hollywood cinema was the 1930s.

From February 6 to March 5, Film Forum down in the Village is presenting some the classics of the Great Depression including It Happened One Night, Little Ceasar, American Madness, Mr Deeds Goes to Town, and the original Scarface and King Kong.

Dubbed Breadlines and Champagne, these movies encapsulate not only the hardships of that era but also some of the escapism that Americans enjoyed at that time.

Some of these films, like Baby Face with a young and hot Barbara Stanwyck, are quite naughty and racy. It came out in 1933 before the whole Hayes Code/Catholic League thing made American movies rather vanilla for the next thirty-something years. Five extra sordid minutes of Baby Face footage were discovered in 2005!
