La Cava to get retrospective at MoMa

Short Take

The Dept. of Film and Media of the Museum of Modern Art will present a retrospective of films by writer-director Gregory La Cava July 22-Aug. 15.

The series will run at the Roy and Niuta Titus theaters and includes two programs of La Cava’s pioneering animation as well as features starring W.C. Fields, Carole Lombard, Katharine Hepburn, Ginger Rogers and William Powell.

Among the features to be screened are “Stage Door” (1937), “Bed of Roses” (1933) and “So’s Your Old Man” (1926).

Hailed by Fields as “the second funniest man in America,” Gregory La Cava (1892-1952) was responsible for some of the most caustic screwball comedies and political satires of the Great Depression era.
