Oscar-nominated costume designer Bob Mackie, cinematographer Michael Lonzo, and production designer Roy Christopher are the featured panelists for a screening of this 1945 Hollywood musical comedy in vivid Technicolor! Join us as we explore the legacy of impresario Florenz Ziegfeld, contrasted with the myth that he became as a result of MGM’s fanciful interpretations.
A presentation and clip show on the legacy of Florenz Ziegfeld and his designers begins at 5:30 pm, followed by a screening of ZIEGFELD FOLLIES at 6:00 pm.
“As 2012 heralds the Guild's 75th anniversary year, and in keeping with the great
MGM tradition of "Make it Big! Make it Great! And Give it Class!" we have
chosen this visually amazing film as our way of honoring the memory of some of
our industry's finest artisans and performers.”
-Thomas A. Walsh, President of the Art Directors Guild.
