New CIA building taking shape; set for December completion
The Alloy Orchestra accompanies
United States | 1924 | Victor Sjöstrom
The latest score by the Alloy Orchestra (see 9/28 at 8 pm), premiered at this year's Telluride Film Festival, accompanies a little-known but sensational silent melodrama made in Hollywood by the great Swedish director Victor Sjöstrom (The Wind, The Phantom Chariot). Lon Chaney (see previous blurb), the "Man of a Thousand Faces," plays a brilliant scientist who loses both his groundbreaking research and his wife to a dishonest man. Wounded, he joins the circus and becomes a sad clown who wears his heart on his sleeve and suffers repeated humiliation and abuse—to the delight of hundreds of spectators. This piercing, Pagliacci-style fable, shown in a restored version from the George Eastman House, may have inspired Sternberg's The Blue Angel and Bergman's The Naked Night/Sawdust and Tinsel. With Norma Shearer and John Gilbert.
80 min. Blu-ray. Special admission $15; Cinematheque members and CIA I.D. holders $12; age 25 & under (and those who paid to see Phantom at 4 pm) $8; no passes, twofers, or radio winners.
