Screening of the Sandlot and Discussion with James D'Arc
Oct 10, 2017, 6:00 pm
Why does Hollywood love Utah so much? Come meet film historian and author James D'Arc and learn about the long history of film in Utah. Then stick around for screening of the family favorite The Sandlot, much of which was filmed right in Ogden.
James D'Arc's When Hollywood Came to Town documents over a century of film in Utah, during which the state played host to scores of Hollywood films, from potboilers on lean budgets to some of the most memorable films ever made, including The Searchers, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Footloose, and Thelma &telling how these films were made, what happened on and off set, and more. As one Utah rancher memorably said, Hollywood moviemakers "don't take anything but pictures and don't leave anything but money."
James V. D'Arc , Ph.D., is Curator of the BYU Motion Picture Archive, the BYU Film Music Archive and the Arts and Communications Archive of the L. Tom Perry Special Collections at Brigham Young University. He directs the BYU Motion Picture Archive Film Series, produces a CD series of original motion picture soundtrack, and appears on DVD documentaries dealing with classic films. For over 30 years, Dr. D'Arc has lectured internationally on motion picture history and has taught film courses at BYU. He lives in Orem, Utah.
The Sandlot is a 1993 American coming-of-age baseball film co-written and directed by David M. Evans, which tells the story of a group of young baseball players during the summer of 1962. It stars Tom Guiry, Mike Vitar, Karen Allen, Denis Leary and James Earl Jones. The filming locations were in Glendale, Midvale, Salt Lake City, and Ogden, Utah.
This event is made possible with support from Weber Book Links, Weber County Library System, and Utah Humanities.
