Saturday, November 11, 2017
4070 Vilas Hall
Cast: Robert Warwick, Robert Cummings, Alec B. Francis This tale of a crook trying to go straight, adapted from an O. Henry story, is one of the finest of early American features thanks to subtle performances and brilliant direction from veteran Tourneur (The Last of the Mohicans). Preceded by the short satire of Hollywood, THE ICED BULLET (1917, 35mm, 50 min.), featuring flagrant PR for the Thomas Ince studio, where we see movies being shot.
