You Must Remember This: The Warner Bros. Story - War and Peace: 1937-1949 (Episode #2104)

KQED Life: Sun, Jul 29, 2012 -- 8:00 PM

Good War, Uneasy Peace (1935-1950) - Warner Bros. becomes home to celebrated stars Bette Davis, Humphrey Bogart, Errol Flynn and more. The studio -- like the world -- faces the twin catastrophes of the Depression and World War II. Warner answers with films that reflect a deep and defiant belief in the courage of common people. But after the war, on-screen noir reflects the off-screen anxiety of blacklists and political witch-hunts. Key interviews: James Cagney, Ronald Reagan, Howard Hawks and Alexis Smith. Key films: Casablanca, Now, Voyager, The Adventures of Robin Hood, Kings Row and White Heat.

You Must Remember This: The Warner Bros. Story - A Rising Power: 1923-1937 (Episode #2103)

KQED Life: Sat, Jul 28, 2012 -- 11:00 PM

In April 1923, four brothers from Ohio officially incorporated their new motion picture company. By the end of the decade, Warner Bros. hit it big with the sound of The Jazz Singer, the gangster personas of Edward G. Robinson and James Cagney and the musicals of Busby Berkeley. Directed by the award winning filmmaker and film critic Richard Schickel and narrated by Clint Eastwood, this 5-hour series chronicles the legacy of Warner Bros. with limitless access to movie clips and rare archival interviews and gives us the history of 20th century. Illuminating the footage and archival interviews are on-camera discussions with Warren Beatty, George Clooney, Clint Eastwood, Sidney Lumet, Martin Scorsese and Steven Spielberg, among many others.
You Ain't Heard Nothin' Yet (1923-1935) - Episode one introduces the four Youngstown, Ohio, brothers (Harry, Albert, Sam and Jack L. Warner) who officially incorporated their new motion picture company on April 4, 1923. "Rin Tin Tin" may have put them on the map, but soon gave way to a unique hard-boiled, hard-times cinema ethos. Tough guys James Cagney and Edward G. Robinson dominated the new gangster genre, tough dame Barbara Stanwyck headlined racy melodramas and even the chorus kids in the dazzling musicals were one bad break away from the streets. Key interviews: Busby Berkeley, Edward G. Robinson, Alfred Hitchcock and William Wellman. Key films: "The Jazz Singer," "Public Enemy," "42nd Street," "Baby Face" and "Little Caesar."
