Event Description

(1933) dir Victor Fleming w/Jean Harlow, Lee Tracy, Frank Morgan, Franchot Tone, Pat O'Brien, Una Merkel [96 min; 35mm]

In BOMBSHELL, sexpot movie star Jean Harlow plays sexpot movie star Lola Burns who is desperate to escape the salacious image that her jealous publicist has built for her. A terrific pre-code comedy with the hotter than hot Harlow in one of her signature roles.

KARINA LONGWORTH is the creator and host of one of our favorite film-centric podcasts, You Must Remember This, and we are thrilled to welcome her to the Brattle for this special screening. In her brand-new book SEDUCTION: SEX, LIES, AND STARDOM IN HOWARD HUGHES'S HOLLYWOOD, Longworth dives deep into the murky personal and professional life of one of the most powerful and infamous men in Golden Age Hollywood, Howard Hughes. Vivid, perceptive, timely, and ridiculously entertaining, SEDUCTION is a landmark work that examines women, sex, and male power in Hollywood during its golden age—a legacy that endures nearly a century later.

Longworth will introduce the film with a special presentation and be on hand to sign copies of her book afterwards.
