From "Sunrise" to "Die Hard": The History of 20th Century Fox

Presented by Schawn Belston, Executive Vice President, Library and Technical Services, 20th Century Fox

Join Schawn Belston as he presents an illustrated history of 20th Century Fox, tracing the studio’s many milestones from the early days up through the present. One of Hollywood’s original “big six,” 20th Century Fox was formed in 1935 with the merger of Fox Film Corporation and Twentieth Century Pictures. The studio went on to make stars of Shirley Temple and Marilyn Monroe, introduce CinemaScope in 1953, and produce The Grapes of Wrath (1940), The Sound of Music (1965), Star Wars (1977), and Titanic (1997)—among hundreds of other classics. (program approx. 90 mins.)

Please note: due to an expected high volume of event traffic on campus, parking is suggested in Arps Garage.
