Chris Yogerst discusses “The Warner Brothers” at the Casden Conversations


This virtual event will feature Dr. Chris Yogerst in conversation with Dr. Tom Doherty, moderated by Dr. Steven Ross. Their discussion will focus on a new biography of the Warner Brothers, which showcases the significant role Warner Bros. played in the origins of Hollywood. Warner Bros. films were always a reflection of the brothers’ social and political compass. From the silent era to the Great Depression, World War II and the Cold War, Warner Bros. made provocative, hard-edged films that grappled with real world issues. The brothers openly campaigned for social justice and warned about the evils of Nazism at home and abroad. Almost always on the right side of history, the Warners met the moment at every cultural turning point.
