NJJFF Extra! Event: FROM HITLER TO HOLLYWOOD: How Jewish Exiles Reshaped American Film
Presented by John Kenrick
Hundreds of Jewish filmmakers were forced by Nazi oppression to leave Europe. Most found their way to Los Angeles, where their acting, writing, musical, and directing talents helped ignite the golden age of Hollywood studios. John Kenrick celebrates this rich and rarely discussed legacy from CASABLANCA to SOME LIKE IT HOT and beyond.
