Given that throughout 2019 HOME has been celebrating women’s contribution to world cinema, it seems wholly appropriate that as part of our focus on the musical we salute the work of twice Oscar-nominated writer Betty Comden. In collaboration with her writing partner Adolph Green, Comden was a leading figure on Broadway, writing an array of award-winning liberetti, scripts, songs. Together they were also major contributors to some of Hollywood’s most loved musicals. This short season offers the opportunity to come along and enjoy some of the most striking and innovative Hollywood musicals of the post-war era.
Curated by Andy Willis and Rachel Hayward for Celebrating Women in Global Cinema.
Screening as part of BFI Musicals! The Greatest Show on Screen, a UK-wide film season supported by National Lottery, BFI Film Audience Network and ICO.
