Ben Hecht: Fighting Words, Moving Pictures
Hosted By: Park Avenue Synagogue
Ace reporter, celebrated playwright, taboo-busting novelist, and “the greatest of American screenwriters” (according to the New Yorker), Ben Hecht wrote the Hollywood we know today. In this exploration of Hecht’s life and work, we’ll explore his most notable screenplays, as well as his role as an outspoken crusader for Jewish communities around the world. Whatever the outrage he stirred, this renaissance man and self-declared “child of the century” came to embody much that defined America — especially Jewish America — in his time.
