Republic Pictures 75th Anniversary Event
CBS Studio Center
(the former Republic Pictures lot)
4204 Radford Ave., Studio City, California
Presented by the Cultural Affairs Committee of the Studio City Neighborhood Council and the Museum of the San Fernando Valley, this free event is part of a month-long celebration of Republic Pictures.
Check the website for the list of guests, events, talks and screenings of Republic films and serials (at The Egyptian Theatre) that make up the rest of the celebration. Can you think of anything in this world more worthy of celebrating than Republic Pictures?
The shot above is Joan Leslie from Woman They Almost Lynched (1953), a pretty atypical Republic picture (it was directed by Allan Dwan, so I couldn’t resist). Far more representative is Trail Of Robin Hood (1950), which my daughter and I would hitchhike to The Egyptian to see. (Unfortunately, the films to be shown don’t seem to have been announced yet.)
