Part of The Essential John Ford
Sunday, July 26, 2015, 2:30 p.m.

With live musical accompaniment by Donald Sosin (keyboard) and Joanna Seaton (vocals)

Dir. John Ford. 1927, 61 mins. Restored by Park Road Post Production in Wellington, New Zealand, under the direction of Twentieth Century Fox and the Academy Film Archive. Print courtesy of the Academy Film Archive. With Nancy Nash, Earle Foxe, Grant Withers. Considered lost until a print was discovered in the New Zealand Film Archive in 2009, this backstage drama about an egotistical actor and a vaudeville couple who partner in a knife-throwing act hints at the influence of F. W. Murnau on Ford’s evolving style. “[A] turning point in the development of one of America’s greatest filmmakers.” - Dave Kehr
