Chicago!

Recommended Posts

Just heard the following announcement and will share it for those who are in the San Francisco area or planning a visit:

 

The original film version of the 1926 play, Chicago, will be screened at 7:30pm on December 2 at the Castro Theatre, in a special presentation of the San Francisco Silent Film Festival.

 

"What makes this such a remarkable find is that it's the real thing -- it isn't a nostalgia piece about the Roaring Twenties, it is the Roaring Twenties," Stephen Salmons, the festival's artistic director, said in the statement. The silent film, which stars Phyllis Haver, as Roxie Hart was made in 1927.

 

Also on December 2 in the afternoon, the festival will present a program of Walt Disney's early cartoons called Silly Symphonies in which frogs, trees and skeletons are shown dancing to popular music from the 1920's. This will be followed by a panel discussion by animation experts and Disney scholars.
