For this event, author and creator of the You Must Remember This podcast, Karina Longworth, will join us at Chicago Filmmakers for a special screening of the 1950 film Outrage. In Outrage, a young woman's life is shattered when she is raped on her way home from work. This black-and-white B movie starring Mala Powers and directed and co-written by Ida Lupino is notable for being only the second post-Code Hollywood film to deal with the issue of rape. Karina Longworth's new book Seduction is a riveting history that probes the inner workings of Hollywood's glamorous Golden Age through the stories of some of the dozens of actresses pursued by Howard Hughes. Longworth reveals how the millionaire mogul’s obsessions with sex, power, and publicity trapped, abused, or benefitted women who dreamt of screen stardom long before the recent Harvey Weinstein scandal. Karina will introduce the film.
Karina Longworth is the creator, producer, and host of You Must Remember This, a podcast on the secret and forgotten history of 20th-century Hollywood, as well as the author of books about George Lucas, Al Pacino, and Meryl Streep.
