THE BLOOD OF JESUS & HELL-BOUND TRAIN
Sunday, February 14
THE BLOOD OF JESUS (1941, Spencer Williams): Shot by her husband, a young Sister travels to the proverbial crossroads, facing the Devil himself. First feature for actor/director Williams, later the Amos of TV’s Amos and Andy. HELL-BOUND TRAIN (c. 1931, James and Eloyce Gist): home-grown evangelical surrealism, as a horned devil works the throttle of a symbolic locomotive, amid such deadly sins as dancing, gambling, and debauchery. Silent, with recorded music by Samuel Waymon (Ganja and Hess). Restored by S. Torriano Berry for the Library of Congress. DCP restorations. Approx. 100 mins.
