Hollywood Musicals: A Unique Genre is a classic movie matinee series taking place select Monday afternoons in July. Each screening includes an introduction and post-screening discussion led by Karen Davis, former director of the Palm Beach Jewish Film Festival, artistic director of the Palm Beach Israeli Film Series, and moderator for the Cinema Club in Deerfield Beach.
Bill Williamson (Bill Robinson), a struggling performer, meets a beautiful vocalist named Selina Rogers (Lena Horne). Bill promises her that they will be together after he becomes a success. However, he and Selina both skyrocket to fame and lose contact. Fortunately, Bill just might get one more chance to woo Selina at a huge musical stage show. Popular entertainers of the 1940s, including Fats Waller and Cab Calloway, perform as themselves in the film.
This film program takes place on Monday afternoons.
Admission to this film is free with the price of Museum admission.
