Focus 45: Claudia Pretelin, From the Kodak Girl to the Kodak Snapshot: Kodak Advertising 1920–1940

Saturday, July 22 @ 12:0013:00
George Eastman Museum (formerly George Eastman House),
900 East Ave.
Rochester, New York 14607 United States
+ Google Map

In the Curtis Theatre of the George Eastman Museum, Claudia Pretelin will present a Focus 45 lecture titled From the Kodak Girl to the Kodak Snapshot: Kodak Advertising 1920–1940.

Early Kodak advertising is mostly associated with the iconic image of the Kodak Girl. Then in the 1930s, Eastman Kodak Company turned their advertising campaigns over to the New York advertising agency J. Walter Thompson. How did this change affect the public image of Kodak? Claudia Pretelin, art historian, will explore this era of Kodak advertising and how it created the basis for the so-called snapshot aesthetic.

Portrait photographer Elsa Dorfman found her medium in 1980: the larger-than-life Polaroid Land 20×24 camera. For the next thirty-five years she captured the "surfaces" of those who visited her Cambridge, Massachusetts studio: families, Beat poets, rock stars, and Harvard notables. As pictures begin to fade and her retirement looms, Dorfman gives Errol Morris an inside tour of her backyard archive.

Vertigo, Komposition in Blau (Composition in Blue) screening (2017-Jul-22 @ 7:30 p.m.)

Saturday, July 22 @ 19:3021:43
Dryden Theatre at George Eastman Museum (formerly George Eastman House),
900 East Ave.
Rochester, New York 14607 United States
+ Google Map

The Dryden will screen Vertigo (Alfred Hitchcock, U.S. 1958, 128 min., 35mm), and Komposition in Blau (Composition in Blue, Oskar Fischinger, Germany 1935, 5 min., 35mm) as part of the Tricks through Time series.

In Hitchcock's most personal film, a retired San Francisco detective (James Stewart) is hired to follow the wife (Kim Novak) of a former school chum. Slowly, inexorably, he becomes obsessed with his charge, but both are haunted by their own personal ghosts. Manipulating narrative and audience expectations, Vertigo stands as perhaps the most profoundly fascinating and disturbing film ever to emerge from the Hollywood system. The dense color palette of the film—shot in Technicolor—plays a key part in the mystery and emotion of the film. Bernard Hermann's orchestration of Vertigo's hues will be preceded by the more literal color symphony directed by famous animator Oskar Fischinger.

Rochester, New York 14607 United States

The Dryden will screen Lassie Come Home (Fred M. Wilcox, U.S. 1943, 98 min., 35mm) as part of the Dryden Kids series.

The ultimate boy-and-his-dog movie—and the first in the warmest, fuzziest film franchise of all time—stars young Roddy McDowall as Joe Carraclough, an impoverished Yorkshire lad who must sell off his best friend, a Rough Collie named Lassie (beautifully played by legendary canine star Pal), when his family falls upon hard times. Lassie's aristocratic new owner (Nigel Bruce) ships Lassie off to Scotland, where his granddaughter (a 10-year-old Elizabeth Taylor, in her second film) helps a homesick Lassie plot her escape. Free for ages 17 and younger.

Speedy screening (2017-Jul-24 @ 1:30 p.m.)

Monday, July 24 @ 13:3014:55
Dryden Theatre at George Eastman Museum (formerly George Eastman House),
900 East Ave.
Rochester, New York 14607 United States
+ Google Map

The Dryden will screen Speedy (Ted Wilde, U.S. 1928, 85 min., 35mm) with live piano accompaniment by Philip C. Carli as part of the America's Favorite Pastime series.

In a rollicking action comedy that rivals the masterful Safety Last, Harold Lloyd plays Harold "Speedy" Swift. A dreamer and schemer, Speedy gets himself involved in a number of outrageous slapstick stunts in his attempts to hold down a job. The highlights include a climactic mad dash across New York City in a horse-drawn trolley and Speedy's equally uproarious taxi ride to Yankee Stadium with terrified passenger Babe Ruth (playing himself!).

The Great Train Robbery, Way Down East screening

Tuesday, July 25 @ 19:3022:10
Dryden Theatre at George Eastman Museum (formerly George Eastman House),
900 East Ave.
Rochester, New York 14607 United States
+ Google Map

The Dryden will screen The Great Train Robbery (Edwin S. Porter, U.S. 1903, 12 min., 35mm), and Way Down East (D. W. Griffith, U.S. 1920, 148 min., 35mm) with live piano accompaniment by Philip C. Carli as part of the Tricks through Time series.

The second silent night of our special effects program is dedicated to the fathers of editing and suspense, Porter and Griffith. Porter's milestone The Great Train Robbery is one of the earliest films to use the technique of cross cutting, in which two scenes happening in two different locations are shown simultaneously. Griffith's dynamic flair for action makes the best of this innovation in the classic climatic sequence of Way Down East on top of breaking ice floes.
