"Look Who’s Back: The Hollywood Renaissance & the Blacklist" film season invites you to re-think the youth-orientated image of the Hollywood renaissance, suggesting that we should not overlook the vital contribution of a group of middle-aged, liberal-minded, formerly blacklisted creatives.
Season Curator Andy Willis (Professor of Film Studies at the University of Salford and Senior Visiting Curator at HOME in Manchester) has provided exclusive video introductions for this and all screenings in the season at Riverside, giving you vita insights into the thinking behind the season and a rationale for the choice of films included, as well as those left out.
This celebrated satire depicts the crazy antics and the sexual adventures of Hawkeye Pierce (Donald Sutherland), Trapper John McIntyre (Elliott Gould) and Duke Forrest (Tom Skerritt), all surgeons working in a Mobile Army Surgical Hospital during the Korean War. The black humour of the medical team is contrasted with the terrible waste of life that they are exposed to. This was director Robert Altman's first major hit, and bears his characteristic stamp of documentary-like camerawork, loose narrative and quick-fire, realistically delivered dialogue. A long-running, popular television series followed, although the only cast member to make the transition was Gary Burghoff (Radar O'Reilly).
