Michelle Malik of the Eddie Cantor Appreciation Society, historian Dave Greim and Cantor’s granddaughter, Amanda Gari, gather to discuss the life and career of the vaudevillian actor, singer and humanitarian. The program features a screening of the 1995 documentary, One Man’s Laughter, and A Ziegfeld Midnight Frolic, a rare and controversial 1929 short – thought to have been lost for decades – in which Cantor performs entirely in black face. The evening also includes refreshments, a raffle and other surprises.
Wed., Feb. 11, 7:30-9:30 p.m., 2015
