Milos Forman's Debut Loves of a Blonde Screens Tonight

Posted By on Tue, May 22, 2018 at 1:14 PM

This week, Indie Memphis continues its collaboration with Memphis In May with the debut film from a director who has an intimate connection with Memphis.

  • Loves Of A Blonde
Long before Milos Forman brought the The People vs Larry Flynt production to the Bluff City and made hometown hero Jerry Lawler a movie star with Man on the Moon, he was one of the founding members of the Czech New Wave. His debut film Loves of a Blonde would not look out of place in the indie film world today. It's a low-key romantic comedy about the trial and tribulations of young people trying to find love in a confusing world. Based on stories from Forman and friend's lives, it was shot on location in a small Czech town with a largely non-professional cast. Two years after its European release, it was nominated for Best Foreign Film at the 1967 Academy Awards.

The show starts at 7 p.m. at Malco Ridgeway. You can get your tickets in advance at the Indie Memphis website. Here's a fan-made trailer, to give you a taste of the atmosphere.
