SHSNY Movie Night - "The Life of Emile Zola" - Hollywood, Nazis & the Jews

Starring Paul Muni, this classic biopic won the 1937 Best Picture Oscar. Zola’s career was capped by his “J’accuse!” defense of Captain Alfred Dreyfus, wrongly accused by French anti-Semites of spying for Germany.And now we learn (The New Yorker, Sep 16) that Hollywood moguls colluded with the Nazis to soften the film’s message. 

After-the-Film Discussion:Hitler, Hollywood, the Jews, and anti-Semitism - then and now. 


SHSNY Movie Night is FREE. (But put something on the bar beside your elbow.)

    Interesting (if dated) movie, and very interesting discussion of anti-semitism after.
