The rise of Nazi Germany drove numerous artists to flee Europe and settle in America, where they helped create Hollywood's Golden Age. The Skirball Cultural Center celebrates these émigrés through an exhibition featuring the works of notables such as Otto Preminger, Billy Wilder and Marlene Dietrich. You'll have the opportunity to see clips of anti-Nazi, comedy and flim noir movies starring these "exiles and émigrés" as well as costumes, manuscripts and photos—with contributions from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences library—that'll give you a comprehensive look at early 20th century cinema.
