NEW SEASON OF THE ACADEMY MUSEUM PODCAST FROM THE ACADEMY MUSEUM OF MOTION PICTURES AND LAIST STUDIOS EXPLORES THE ROLE OF CASTING.

Launching June 15, Director and President of the Academy Museum Jacqueline Stewart Returns as Host to Explore the Art and Influence of Casting throughout the History of Cinema.

Los Angeles, CA, May 24, 2023The Academy Museum of Motion Pictures is continuing its partnership with LAist Studios to release a new season of The Academy Museum Podcast, an audio series that draws inspiration from the museum’s galleries to further expand upon both pivotal and lesser known stories across the history of cinema. Jacqueline Stewart, Director and President of the Academy Museum, returns as host when the season launches on Thursday, June 15, 2023.

The second season, titled “Close Up on Casting,” was inspired by Stewart’s observation that museum visitors gravitate to the Performance gallery that features audition tapes, early Polaroid photos of actors, and casting directors’ notes. The question of “who gets the part?” has evolved over time, and Stewart seeks to break down this essential and often misunderstood element of the filmmaking process. Each episode explores different themes that help explain the immense influence that casting directors can have on the success of a film and the career trajectories of actors.

Episodes include revelatory interviews and in-depth conversations with casting directors and scholars, including Cara Caddoo, Reuben Cannon, Sarah Finn, Eric Goldberg, Kimberly Hardin, Mary Hidalgo, Lora Kennedy, Laurie Parker, David Rubin, and Patricia White. In addition, this season features archival audio and other exclusive content that will only be accessible through the podcast. Listeners can find the series on the Academy Museum and LAist Studios websites, as well as on Apple PodcastsSpotify, and other podcast platforms.
 
Among the stories that will be featured in the 10-episode season are:
 

  • “The Casting of Rebecca: Vivien Leigh vs. Joan Fontaine”
  • “Typecasting and the Studio System: The Case of Noble Johnson”
  • “Innovators in New Hollywood: Marion Dougherty + Lynn Stalmaster”
  • “Breaking Boundaries in the ‘70s: Reuben Cannon”
  • “Typecasting Revisited: In the Cut and Casting Against Type”

The inaugural season of the podcast, “And The Oscar Goes To…, went behind the scenes of touchstone Academy Awardsceremonies, probing key social and cultural moments that impacted film artists as well as film fans over the years. Notable episodes include “1957: The Brave One,”which explored the history of blacklisting in Hollywood, and “2002: This Door Has Been Opened,” which featured Halle Berry’s reflections on her historic Best Actress Oscar win.

The Academy Museum of Motion Pictures will present a Star Wars-inspired May the 4th celebration. 

The Academy Museum of Motion Pictures will present a Star Wars-inspired May the 4th celebration. This exciting event will include photo ops with R2-D2, hands-on activities related to the Star Wars universe, a 15% discount* on select Star Wars merchandise at the Academy Museum Store, and a special 40th anniversary screening of Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi.

Celebrating its 40th anniversary with our screening of the Special Edition, this final episode in the original Star Wars trilogy begins as Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), stunned by the news of his true parentage, makes a desperate attempt to rescue Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) from the clutches of Jabba the Hutt. Soon the construction of a new Death Star leads to a confrontation with the Emperor (Ian McDiarmid) as well as a decisive battle against the Empire, with the unexpected help of the plucky Ewoks. This action-packed intergalactic adventure was the final Star Wars film until George Lucas reignited the franchise 16 years later with Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace (1999).

In addition, there will be two book signings, one with Paul Hirsch, Oscar-winning film editor of Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope (1977) and Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back (1980), and Howard Kazanjian, producer of Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi (1983).

Paul Hirsch, A Long Time Ago in a Cutting Room Far, Far Away: My Fifty Years Editing Hollywood Hits—Star Wars, Carrie, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Mission: Impossible, and MoreA Long Time Ago in a Cutting Room Far, Far Away  provides a behind-the-scenes look at some of the most influential films of the last fifty years as seen through the eyes of Hirsch, the Oscar®-winning film editor who worked on such classics as George Lucas’s Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope (1977)—for which he won an Academy Award—and Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back (1980), Brian De Palma’s Carrie (1976) and Mission: Impossible (1996), Herbert Ross’s Footloose (1984) and Steel Magnolias (1989), John Hughes’s Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986) and Planes, Trains & Automobiles  (1987), Joel Schumacher’s Falling Down (1993), and Taylor Hackford’s Ray (2004)—for which Hirsch received his second Oscar nomination.

J. W. Rinzler, Howard Kazanjian: A Producer’s LifeHoward Kazanjian, a film producer whose career spans fifty years, has collaborated with Hollywood legends such as Alfred Hitchcock, Billy Wilder, Sam Peckinpah, Steven Spielberg, and George Lucas, and has worked on such classics as Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes BackRaiders of the Lost Ark (1981), and  Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi (1983). Complete with personal anecdotes from the front lines, and coupled with rare archival photographs, this full-length biography tells the story of Kazanjian’s rise in Hollywood and takes us behind the scenes of the producer’s role in some of the biggest blockbusters in film history
