The Sin of Nora Moran | USA | 1933 | DCP | 65 min. Director: Phil Goldstone

Event Details

Wednesday, July 24, 2019
8:30 p.m.
4070 Vilas Hall
Cast: Zita Johann, John Miljan, Alan Dinehart
The standard pre-Code plot of a victimized woman (The Mummy’s Johann, as Nora) who descends into a life of degradation is elevated through a series of flashbacks, flash-forwards and flashbacks-within-flashbacks. Filmed on an ultra-low budget, The Sin of Nora Moran’s storytelling style is so complex that the narrative assumes a free-form, dream-like quality that enhances rather than detracts from it.
