CAMILLE

1921 - silent • Rudolph Valentino, Alla Nazimova

• With Live Accompaniment on the Wurlitzer Pipe Organ •

 

 

Valentino was virtually unknown when he made this film, but he was destined to become the biggest star of his time.

The unique and imaginative art direction and costume design is by Valentino’s wife-to-be Natacha Rambova.

HEIDI

1937 • Shirley Temple, Jean Hersholt

 

 

Many consider this film to be Shirley Temple’s best!  You can certainly see why she became a mega-star sensation at such a young age. Who can resist a feisty young Temple teaching a grumpy old man to open his heart again?  Heidi is endearing, sentimental, and thoroughly enjoyable.

DUCK SOUP

1933 • The Marx Brothers

 

 

“Duck soup” was American slang in the 1930s, describing something that’s easy to do.  Director Leo McCarey reportedly came up with the title for the film, continuing the "animal" titles of the Marx Brothers' previous three films, Animal Crackers, Monkey Business and Horse Feathers. This one is a funny, funny movie!

IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT

1934 • Clark Gable, Claudette Colbert

Directed by Frank Capra

 

 

A charming screwball comedy that was the first film to win Oscars in all the main categories: Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Director, and Screenplay. An urban legend claims that sales of men's undershirts declined noticeably when in one scene Gable undresses for bed, taking off his shirt to reveal that he is bare chested. Let’s face it, this one’s a classic and on everyone’s ‘must see’ list.

COLLEGE

1927 • Buster Keaton

 

 

One of the great comedians of the silent era, Buster Keaton is in rare form in College.  He plays a bookish college student who tries to become an athlete to reconcile with his girlfriend, but it turns out to be harder than he thought. Keaton’s own athletic prowess allows him to pull off some impressive gags, and the film leaves you with a sweet ending, Keaton-style.
