LA's European Era

New, 2 comments

A professor at the American University of Rome has made a film called A Ticket to Hollywood: Europeans in Screenland, 1925-56, about one of our favorite underappreciated pieces of LA history: "It focuses on the contingent of European men and women of arts and letters whose journey to Los Angeles was ostensibly spurred by an interest in the motion picture industry and the opportunities it was believed to generate. It consists of five short chapters covering architecture, music, literature, the movies, and the Europeans in 1930s, 40s and 50s Los Angeles." See the prologue here. [AURCOM]
