20174/7, Friday, 7pm Arizona History Museum Tucson, AZJennifer Jenkins, Celluloid PuebloMost of us are familiar with the five Cs of Arizona — copper, cattle, cotton, citrus, and climate, but how much do you know about #6? It was celluloid! In the 1930s, the nation was fascinated by all things “western,” and Charles and Lucile Herbert founded Western Ways Features in 1936 to take advantage of that appetite by documenting the landscape and diverse cultures of Arizona and northern Mexico. Jennifer Jenkins tells the story of Western Ways Features and its role in the invention of the Southwest of the Imagination. For 30 years, the Herberts created a visual documentary of the region, their archival films serving today as a time capsule of the Sunbelt in the mid-twentieth century. This talk will explore the Herberts’ move into television production at the abandoned Old Tucson site, a venture that led to a swindle, scandal, and the “fade to black” of Western Ways.
