    Bonfire of the Titans

    Author Neal Gabler, in his extraordinary book, An Empire of Their Own, chronicles the history of the Hollywood motion picture industry and how the titans, who were immigrants, created it. Through the vehicle of film, this unique group of uneducated yet highly resourceful Jews influenced the ethics, fashion and culture of American life. They were in every sense pragmatic oligarchs without a sound moral compass, businessmen working in a creative environment. The magnitude of their accomplishments is undeniable, and yet their spineless acquiescence in the face of McCarthyism and the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) investigations was deplorable. Wolf and Levine will discuss both Gabler’s book and the film The Way We Were, which not only is a moving romance with two extraordinary stars – Barbra Streisand (Katie) and Robert Redford (Hubbell) – but also the story of a frightening time in American history called the McCarthy Era, a period that plagued the nation from approximately 1950-1956. Note: Admission includes water and a box lunch prepared by Catering by the Breakers at the Kravis Center.
