Jewish Museum Milwaukee

dsc0801-version-2Did you know on the Third Thursday of each month, Jewish Museum Milwaukee is open late? That’s right – we stay open until 7:00 pm so you have extra time to explore our exhibits! We also feature films that tell the story of the Hollywood Blacklist.

In November, we are screening The Boy With Green Hair, a 1948 American comedy/drama film direct by blacklistee Joseph Losey and staring the young Dean Stockwell.

The Boy With Green Hair is a gentle anti-war fable in which a war orphan, Peter, awakens one day to find that his hair has turned green. This makes him an object of ridicule in his small town, where the locals call for the boy’s head to be shaved. After running away, the child dreams of other war orphans who urge him to return to the town and make its citizens aware of how simple differences can escalate into armed conflict.

Film screening begins at 5:30 pm
Cost: Museum Admission | Members FREE

Offered in connection with Blacklist: Hollywood’s Red Scare, an exhibit on display at the Jewish Museum Milwaukee, October 12, 2018 – February 10, 2019.
