Film Classics in 35mm!
United States | 1931 | Josef von Sternberg
Three films into his seven-film Marlene Dietrich cycle, the great pictorialist moviemaker Josef von Sternberg (The Blue Angel, Morocco) paused to direct this potent, Pre-Code film version of Theodore Dreiser’s mammoth novel that also inspired George Stevens’ A Place in the Sun. The movie tells of a poor young man whose social-climbing ambitions force him to choose between his factory worker girlfriend and a rich young society woman. “Deserves to rank with Sternberg’s best work.” –Time Out Film Guide. 35mm. 96 min.
Special admission $13; members, CIA & CSU I.D. holders, and those age 25 & under $10. No passes or twofers.
