Debuting in The Strange Love of Martha Ivers in 1946, he came to personify a tough, virile masculinity, most memorably in Spatacus (1960). Julie L. Wright’s illustrated talk will consider the Hollywood icon’s enduring stardom and the type of masculinity he portrayed on-screen.

Includes a complete screening of the 1951 classic, Ace in the Hole.
