Hollywood's Jews and the Blacklist

Thursday, May 18, 2023 27 Iyar 5783


Join us to hear local film historian, Rick Winston, explain the complex history of Jews in the movie business:  why many Jewish screenwriters found themselves at odds with Jewish studio bosses, how labor unrest of the 1930s led to the blacklist, how blacklisted writers and others survived during that time, and what brought the blacklist to an end- all illustrated with many photographs and movie stills.  Dessert and coffee will be served.

Rick Winston was the co-owner of Montpelier’s Savoy Theater for 29 years, and was Programming Director for the Green Mountain Film Festival for 14 years. He has taught film history at Burlington College, Community College of Vermont, Goddard College, and the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, and has made presentations throughout Vermont on film history.
