Kanin Family Film Series

Join us for a classic film series focusing on work by the husband-and-wife collaborative teams of the world renowned Kanin family—Garson Kanin and Ruth Gordon, and Fay and Michael Kanin—who began their professional careers in the late 1930s, and worked continuously in Hollywood and on Broadway for the next 50 years. The Kanin films and their themes are as relevant today as they were when they were released. SMC Film Studies professor Josh Kanin will introduce each film in the series, and will join SMC Political Science professor Alan Buckley for an audience discussion following each screening.
