The Hammer Museum in Los Angeles will be hosting a talk by the author of "Hollywood Cinema and the Real Los Angeles" on May 30. The book deals with how the geography of the city shaped filming, beginning in the 1910s through the end of the classical studio system in the 1950s. The book will focus on the silent period, slapstick, movies about the movies, and film noir.
