Strange Illusions: Poverty Row Classics Preserved by UCLA

October 19, 2017–October 28, 2017

The Roy and Niuta Titus Theaters

Long before the Sundance Film Festival, independent productions flourished on Hollywood’s Poverty Row, that strip of Gower Street between Sunset Boulevard and the Paramount lot. Dozens of fly-by-night outfits came and went in the 1930s and ’40s, churning out genre films that often had an edge and grittiness not found in major studio movies. UCLA Film & Television Archive has made it a mission to preserve and restore these rare and endangered works, of which this series presents 12 shining examples, with an emphasis on noir, horror, and pre-Code audacity.

Organized by Dave Kehr, Curator, Department of Film. Special thanks to Jan-Christopher Horak, Todd Weiner, and Scott MacQueen of UCLA Film & Television Archive.

The exhibition is supported by the Annual Film Fund.
