The Match King

Friday, Feb 4, 2011

Many of Warner Bros. 1930s films were “ripped from today’s headlines.” The Match King, with Warren William as a tycoon who corners the world market on matches and builds a financial empire based on junk bonds and pyramid schemes, only to be done in by the stock market crash (and his infatuation with an actress), could have been ripped from today’s headlines. 

Tickets: If visiting the Museum after 4:00 p.m., tickets to Friday evening screenings are $10. Otherwise screening is free with Museum admission.
