A golden age returns to the screen at SAM

The Seattle Art Museum's upcoming "For Laughing Out Loud" film series will offer audiences a glimpse of high-waisted wool slacks, shoulder-padded lamé dresses, and wonderfully asymmetric victory curls. But it's also an opportunity to see a different kind of screen style. These comedies, produced between 1936 and 1950, showcase a glorious array of female talent, from an age where female stars were brash, sassy AND sexy--welcome back to the age of the broad!

Revel in the talents of the zany-glamorous Carole Lombard, the adorably indecisive Jean Arthur, the fast-talking, the no-nonsense Rosalind Russell, the elegantly madcap Irene Dunne, or the ditzy-savant Judy Holliday.

Don't miss this great chance to discover these amazing ladies, or sit back and appreciate them for the umpteenth time.

FILMS IN THIS SERIES INCLUDE:
July 10: Hands Across the Table
July 17: Theodora Goes Wild
July 24: True Confession
July 30: His Girl Friday
August 7: Too Many Husbands
August 14: Born Yesterday
