Art Deco Society Talks 2013
Illustrated Talk & Screening!
Streamline Moderne Design & LOST HORIZON
Co-presented by the Art Deco Society of Los Angeles

The new science of aerodynamics was emerging in the early 1930s and influenced all forms of design. Known as Streamlining, industrial designers and architects embraced this efficient and elegant form of design. From cars to architecture and appliances, the “Streamline Moderne” style reflected growth and the popularity of speed, travel and technology throughout the 1930s. Join John Thomas, President of the Art Deco Society of Los Angeles, as he presents an overview of the influence and variety of the Streamline Moderne design. LOST HORIZON is one of many movies where the art direction and set design embraced the new style; its sets, created by Stephen Goosen, represent Shangri-La in high Streamline Moderne. A screening of the film will follow the talk.

1937, Sony Repertory, 132 min, USA, Dir: Frank Capra

Ronald Colman finds long-sought-for harmony – and love – in the Himalayan mountains. Director Frank Capra’s adaptation of James Hilton’s novel combines edge-of-your-seat adventure with an exploration of what it means to be at peace with oneself. Brilliantly mounted on all levels, from the supporting cast including Jane Wyatt and Sam Jaffe to the Shangri-La set
