Film historians David Fantle and Tom Johnson will give an in-person talk on their latest book: C’mon, Get Happy: The Making of Summer Stock. Summer Stock is a 1950 MGM musical starring Judy Garland and Gene Kelly. The film was produced by Joe Pasternak, a Hungarian immigrant known for his “happy ending” films, which is in sharp contrast to the unspeakable hardships he endured during the Holocaust. A book signing will follow the presentation.
