13. See The Cinema of James Wong Howe
Museum of the Moving Image, through June 26.
Pioneering cinematographer James Wong Howe helped usher film from the silent era into sound, and all while being denied U.S. citizenship until the repeal of the Chinese Exclusion Act in 1943. Look for Howe’s collaborations with William K. Howard (The Power and the Glory), Alexander Mackendrick (Sweet Smell of Success), and Joshua Logan (Picnic).
