Daryl Zanuck

The Producer!!!  Over 249 IMDB credits.  No one has had more impact on film since 1928 than Daryl Zanuck.  He’s produced some of the most iconic films ever, including All About Eve which was the first film to receive 14 Oscar nominations, only one other film has accomplished such acclaim . . . Titanic.  He was an associate producer for “The Jazz Singer” with Al Jolson too.

The next series of 4 films will focus on Zancuk, what the producer does and 4 of his films:

All About Eve, The Gunfighter, Lifeboat and The Longest Day

Come for the first film on Wednesday January 25 at 12:30pm at the Palm Theatre in SLO.  All 4 films for $32 payable at the door or single admissions $10.

One of his earliest films, “The Terror” in 1928 as “talkies” were just appearing.  I’ve not seen the film but found this review which starts off as a sort of bad review but seems to get better as one reads it.  The review is an early review of talkies too.
