Archive

[African American] [Film] A milestone film in 1970 about racial conflict. Halls of Anger. Archive of 8 original vintage Lobby Cards. United Artists, 1970. All measure 11" x 14" and are in black and white with a red background. Halls of Anger was developped in 1969 and released in 1970, a drama film where an all-black inner city school has to become an integrated school. After a few dozen white kids are transferred there, the black students are aggressively opposed. The school then approaches a tough black teacher for help. Filmed at Virgil Middle School in Los Angeles, Halls of Anger is unique in its approach by being purposefully aggressive, using deliberately controversial language and some forceful violence to highlight the very real and dangerous potential of unresolved racial conflict. The film stars a young Calvin Lockhart, who is featured in several of the Lobby Card images, along with co-stars Janet MacLachlan and a young Jeff Bridges. Key scenes of both racial fights and tender moments are featured. In the lower right-hand corner of each card is a small graphic of three girls, one white student and a young black student arguing. On the left hand-corner is an image of Lockhart. Title of the film, production credits, and a United Artists logo are featured in the lower margins. Minor wear around edges overall, Lobby Cards are bright, feature powerful images from the film, and are in very good condition.
