Description
DESERT MAVERICK

Join us for a hosted cocktail reception and screening of Desert Maverick at Hold It Contemporaty Home.

Desert Maverick – The Singular Architecture of William F. Cody, a film by Leo Zahn, is the first in- depth exploration of the works of this major modernist architect in Palm Springs.

The documentary features Cody's most iconic buildings, starting with the 1947 Del Marcos Hotel, which launched his career in the desert. Major sequences are dedicated to his best-known residential and commercial projects built between the late '40s and early '70s -L’Horizon Hotel, Huddle Springs Restaurant, Palm Springs Spa Bathhouse and Spa Hotel, Racquet Club Cottages West, Eldorado Country Club, and the Jorgensen/Mavis , Abernathy and Jaffe residences, as well as Cody Court and St. Theresa Church.

The film captures Cody’s singular style and brings it to life through contemporary cinematography as well as Julius Shulman‘s classic photography.

William F. Cody made his mark with elegant, timeless buildings that are considered masterpieces of desert modern architecture. Tragically, his career was cut short by a debilitating stroke in 1971. “He was the best designer of all of us. While I brought the desert into architecture, Cody brought Fifth Avenue into the desert,” said renowned fellow architect E. Stewart Williams.

The documentary features interviews with renowned California architecture historian Alan Hess, author of the ground-breaking book “Palms Springs Modern” Adele Cygelman, Palm Springs Architecture Museum Curator Sidney Williams, former President of Palm Springs Preservation Foundation Ron Marshall, architecture and lifestyle historian Peter Moruzzi, as well as the architects Frank Urrutia and Rick Holden who worked with Cody.
