Los Angeles exists in our collective cultural imagination, heavily influenced by depictions of the city on film, though it is also a place of brick and mortar; adobe and asphalt. Los Angeles: On Film and On Record is an online journey through film and archives. It examines a number of popular films that feature the City of Angels within the storyline, setting, or both, and compares these visions, interpretations, and variations of movie Los Angeles with the documentary record of real Los Angeles, using archival and other primary sources from Special Collections & Archives.

The exhibit consists of four parts. Part 1, LA Aspirations, explores its role as a hub of opportunity, while part 2, LA Critique, questions Los Angeles as a site of the American dream. Part 3, LA Living, looks at the ways films and filmmakers have attempted to depict "real" Los Angeles. Finally, Part 4, LA Aesthetic, considers ways LA's landscape, architectural features, and infrastructure appear in films, shaping perceptions of the city.

As you explore the exhibit, we encourage you to consider the choices each filmmaker made, and the version of Los Angeles they chose to present. What truths does each film contain? How do they create or reinforce stereotypes about people and places? Who is absent, misrepresented, maligned, or celebrated in narratives about the city, and why?

Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned researcher, you can benefit from the personal attention of Leonard Trujillo, a veteran Hispanic researcher specializing in California and New Mexico research. He is a descendant of the founders of the California village of Agua Mansa (now Colton, San Bernardino County).

Join Leonard on the THIRD Tuesday of each month at the SCGS Family History Library in Burbank, CA where you will have access to more than 30,000 reference volumes, as well as several subscription services, including Ancestry.com. Dedicated researchers should brown bag for lunch—the library has a refrigerator and microwave, OR patronize the local eating spots.

Parking is available adjacent to the library. We are grateful to the SCGS board of directors and their volunteers for their assistance in making this program possible.
