Thane Rosenbaum, Director of the Forum on Law, Culture & Society, offers a sneak preview of "They Won't Forget," which will be shown Wednesday, Oct. 20, during Fordham Law Film Festival. The festival runs Oct. 15-21.
In the classic film, based on the notorious 1915 lynching of Leo Frank in Atlanta, a small southern town clamors for the conviction of a New York transplant accused of rape and murder of a teenage girl (Lana Turner) after an ambitious prosecutor (Claude Rains) creates a media frenzy.
Rosenbaum's post-screening conversation guests will be Morris Dickstein, author of the critically acclaimed "Dancing in the Dark: A Cultural History of the Great Depression"; Abraham Foxman, National Director of the Anti-Defamation League; and Alfred Uhry, the Oscar-, Tony-, and Pulitzer Prize–winning playwright and screenwriter of "Driving Miss Daisy" who's Tony-winning musical "Parade" is also based on the Leo Frank case.
