Academy Lecture: The Uncensored Betty Boop
We’re thrilled to offer an online guest lecture titled The Uncensored Betty Boop on Monday, November 8 at 10 am, hosted by our friends at Sal St. George Living History Productions. Interested attendees can register for the event here.
We’ll be showcasing Betty Boop, the Queen of the Animated Screen, as a major Paramount Pictures star in Pre-Code Hollywood. We’ll discuss her importance as sexy animated Pre-Code character in the context of early 1930s filmmaking and the impact the Hays Code had on her career. And lest that not tempt you enough, we’ll share the meaning of Betty’s boop-oop-a-doop!
We hope you’ll join us for this truly animated one-hour lecture and Q&A led by Classic Couple Academy lead curriculum designer, Kami Spangenberg.
