Seminar: What Happened to Hollywood
From The Sound of Music to Midnight Cowboy: What Happened to Hollywood?
In the 50 months between the releases of these two films in 1965 and 1969, respectively, the American film industry changed forever. Gone was the appropriate-for-all approach instituted by the studio moguls, who themselves were nearly extinct by this time. In its place emerged a something-for-everyone strategy, fueled by the new ratings system and emblematic of the corporate and political culture that had taken over Hollywood—and the counterculture that had swept across America. Join The Bryn Mawr Film Institute in the Canvas Room to explore this tectonic shift through clips from such films as Blow-Up, The Graduate, and Bonnie and Clyde.
