75TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE ART DIRECTORS GUILD
Art Direction Presentation & Panel Discussion!
CAPTAIN BLOOD
Co-presented by the Art Directors Guild Film Society. Sponsored by the Hollywood Reporter

Bring the whole family to the signature film of epic pirate swashbuckler movies CAPTAIN BLOOD, starring Errol Flynn and Olivia de Havilland! A presentation and panel discussion will explore the legacy of pirate movies and recognize Oscar-winning Art Director Anton Grot.

One of Errol Flynn's crowning achievements, CAPTAIN BLOOD is among the best that the pirate genre has created. Dr. Peter Blood (Flynn), a man unjustly convicted of treason, is exiled to Port Royal, sold into slavery and bought by the lovely Lady Arabella (de Havilland). He and fellow convicts manage to escape and take over a Spanish galleon, and the pirate Captain Blood is born. This adventure mixes an intriguing character drama with action on the high seas.

All major pirate movies emanate from CAPTAIN BLOOD,” said Tom Walsh, production designer and ADG President. “It was the quintessential signature film of epic pirate movies. As 2012 heralds the Guild's 75th anniversary year, we have 
chosen this visually amazing film as our way of honoring the memory of some of 
our industry's finest artisans and performers. CAPTAIN BLOOD is the classic Hollywood film and this is a unique opportunity to see it on the wide screen. It is a great movie matinee film, one which you can bring your family to for an adventure filled with great fun!
