Join the Vintage Film Festival for a Springtime Film Talk - all about Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.
Toronto film critic, teacher and curator Alicia Fletcher will talk about Gentlemen Prefer Blondes: the 1925 Anita Loos book, the lost 1926 silent film, and the 1953 musical comedy starring Jane Russell and Marilyn Monroe (which will be screened at Port Hope's Capitol Theatre this October as part of the Vintage Film Festival's 30th anniversary program).
The event will take place on Wednesday, June 14th, at 7:30 p.m. at the Citizens' Forum in Cobourg's Victoria Hall. Tickets are just $10 and can be purchased in advance online through Eventbrite.
Alicia Fletcher is a writer, producer and presenter of Hollywood Suite's "A Year in Film" and "Cinema A to Z" docuseries and podcast. She has taught at Toronto Metropolitan University, the LIFE Institute, and Humber College. Her film curation has been featured at TIFF Cinematheque, the Art Gallery of Ontario, and the Royal Cinema. Since 2012, Alicia has curated Silent Revue, held at the historic Revue Cinema, Canada's only year-round showcase dedicated to silent cinema and Toronto's longest-running repertory series.
