High Noon: The Hollywood Blacklist and the Making of an American Classic

WHEN: Wednesday, March 15, 6:30pm
WHERE: Maryland State Library for the Blind & Physically Handicapped 415 Park Ave., Baltimore, MD 21201

Don't miss a fascinating discussion with Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Glenn Frankel, author of High Noon: The Hollywood Blacklist and the Making of an American Classic, as he tells the story of the making of a great American Western, exploring how Carl Foreman's concept of High Noon evolved from idea to first draft to final script, taking on allegorical weight. 

The program will be introduced by Steve Luxenberg, an associate editor at The Washington Post and author of the award-winning Annie's Ghosts: A Journey Into a Family Secret.

Current MdFF Members: The Ivy Bookshop will have books for sale at Writers LIVE on March 15. Email tickets@mdfilmfest.com for a special discount on a copy of High Noon: The Hollywood Blacklist and the Making of an American Classic when you attend the event on March 15! 


Harold and Lillian: A Hollywood Love Story

Maryland Premiere!

WHEN: Sunday, March 26, 3:00pm
WHERE:
The Gordon Center at the JCC, 3506 Gwynnbrook Avenue, Owings Mills, Maryland

About the Film: A fascinating and moving account of the romantic and creative partnership of storyboard artist Harold Michelson and film researcher Lillian Michelson: two unsung heroes of Hollywood's Golden Age. Over the course of a 60 year marriage, the couple was responsible for some of Hollywood's most iconic examples of visual storytelling, working on movies such as The Birds, Fiddler On The Roof, Rosemary's Baby, and Full Metal Jacket. Their efforts brought great acclaim to many films, although their contributions remain largely uncredited.

Q & A moderated by Christopher Llewellyn Reed, Stevenson University and Mathew Klickstein, journalist/filmmaker/author.

Current MdFF Members: Email tickets@mdfilmfest.com for a special discount code to tickets for this screening! Code must be redeemed via online ticket sale to receive discount.
