The Bronze Screen honors the past, illuminates the present, and opens a window to the future of Latinos in motion pictures. From silent movies to urban gang films, stereotypes of the Greaser, the Lazy Mexican, the Latin Lover, and the Dark Lady are examined. Rare and extensive footage traces the progression of this distorted screen image to the increased prominence of today's Latino actors, writers, and directors.

Featuring insights on Anthony Quinn, Rita Hayworth, Rita Moreno, Raquel Welch, Benicio Del Toro, Antonio Banderas, Desi Arnaz, Salma Hayek, John Leguizamo, Jennifer Lopez, Jimmy Smits, Raul Julia, Cesar Romero, Carmen Miranda, Dolores Del Rio, Lupe Velez, Ricardo Montalban, Jose Ferrer, Cheech Marin, and many more.

With Scenes From: The Addams Family, Chinatown, Colors, Days of Heaven, El Mariachi, Giant, Gilda, The Godfather III, High Noon, King Kong, La Bamba, Like Water for Chocolate, The Magnificent Seven, Selena, Touch of Evil, Up in Smoke, Viva Zapata, West Side Story, The Wild Bunch, Zoot Suit, and dozens of other movies.

DVD Extra Features - The following film trailers serve as tributes to three of the most influential and legendary Latino forces in Hollywood history.
  • Anthony Quinn - Includes insights from his OSCAR-winning roles in Viva Zapata and Lust for Life. Plus scenes from Quinn's most famous performance as Zorba the Greek.
  • Rita Hayworth - Playing the title role in Gilda made Miss Hayworth a star. As the sultry Miss Sadie Thompson, she was truly unforgettable.
  • Rita Moreno - From the original coming attraction of West Side Story, it was evident Ms. Moreno would pick up an OSCAR for her performance in the film.
