1960s HOLLYWOOD with Dr. Philana Payton | FFR 205

The 60s in America are remembered as a time of cultural upheaval and revolution, but did Hollywood keep in step with contemporary conversations? Our expert and guide on this episode of Hollywood by the Decade is Dr. Philana Payton, a scholar-activist with research interests in Black film and television history and popular culture, as well as gender and queer studies, and who is currently a professor of film and media studies at the University of California, Irvine. She’s selected two films from the period to launch our discussion: PARIS BLUES (1961) and LOOK WHO’S COMING TO DINNER (1967).
