Total runtime 90min

In this illustrated talk, American film programmer Miriam Bale will discuss how the history of screwball comedy is inextricably linked to Carole Lombard and her real-life personality as a free-spirited, glamourous tomboy. The work she made with Howard Hawks, Preston Sturges and others helped shape a subgenre of romantic films with fast-paced delivery, physical comedy, class consciousness, and an affectionate mockery of love.
