County Museum fest celebrates MGM anni

The 70th anniversary of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer will be celebrated by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in a two-month studio retrospective featuring classic pix like “The Philadelphia Story” and “Captains Courageous.”

The festival runs from Jan. 7 to Feb. 26.

MGM was incorporated May 17, 1924, when Metro Pictures merged with the Goldwyn Corp. under Louis B. Mayer.

Forty films will be shown, including “The Wizard of Oz,””Singin’ in the Rain, “”Brigadoon” and “Dinner at Eight,” with stars like Judy Garland, Gene Kelly, Clark Gable, Lucille Ball, Mickey Rooney, Elizabeth Taylor and Ava Gardner once more flickering across the screen.

Three daylong film marathons are skedded, including a mixed sampling of old and new fare: Vintage chillers “The Mask of Fu Manchu” and “Mark of the Vampire” join recent pix “Thelma & Louise” and “Moonstruck.”

Screenings will be held in the museum’s Leo S. Bing Theater.
