These unique home movies curated by the Academy Film Archive give a personal, entertaining glimpse into the lives of classic Hollywood figures and celebrate some of the people who overcame barriers to work in the motion picture industry. Footage includes director Dorothy Arzner (the first woman to join the Directors Guild of America) boating with her friend Billie Burke, Gilbert Roland’s 16mm home movies in early Kodachrome, a party at the home of Dolores Del Rio and Cedric Gibbons, a road trip with cinematographer James Wong Howe, director Henry Koster leaving Europe as the Nazis come to power, behind the scenes with Loretta Young, Celeste Holm and Elsa Lanchester, Nat King Cole at a movie premiere, and Ida Lupino directing a female cast led by Rosalind Russell and Hayley Mills in The Trouble with Angels; plus Constance Bennett, Gary Cooper, Marlene Dietrich, William Haines, Gypsy Rose Lee, Satchel Paige and more. Actor Hayley Mills, writer-director Gregory Nava and Henry Koster’s son Bob Koster share stories about their family films, and archivist Sean Savage provides tips on caring for your own home movies.
