You're The Tops: The Making of Night and Day

By carycomeshome

Join Professor Mark Glancy (Queen Mary University London) and Dr Kathrina Glitre (UWE Bristol) in a panel discussion about the making of Night and Day (dir. Michael Curtiz, 1946), the musical biopic in which Cary Grant plays Cole Porter. Grant's first colour film, it was also one of the biggest box office hits of the 1940s. Drawing on their archive research in the Herrick Library in Los Angeles, we will explore the film's production history and also unpack themes and issues raised by the film, contextualising both the representation (or lack thereof) of homosexuality and disability on screen.

This event supports our in-person screening of Night and Day on Saturday 21 October at St Mary Redcliffe Church in Cary Grant's hometown Bristol, UK, which will include live music from Keep it Vocal choirs, cocktails and chance to join in singing Cole Porter classics.
