Christel Schmidt, who edited the recent anthology Mary Pickford: Queen of the Movies (Library of Congress/University Press of Kentucky), will introduce a special screening of Pickford’s 1926 silent film Sparrows, one of her best movies. (The film will be shown in a color-tinted 35mm restoration from the Library of Congress, with live piano accompaniment by Cinematheque favorite Joseph Rubin of New York City.) The expressionistic Sparrows finds the movies’ first female superstar trying to free a group of orphan children from a horrific “baby farm” located next to an alligator-infested swamp. The film’s original trailer and some outtakes will also be shown, and Christel Schmidt will sell and sign copies of her book after the screening. Approximately 120 min.back to events list
