THE DONOVAN AFFAIR
Tuesday, October 14
A SPECIAL MOVIE-AND-LIVE ACTOR PRESENTATION!
SPECIAL ADMISSION: $20
FILM FORUM MEMBERS: $13
(1929) After no-good Jack Donovan kills the lights at a house party for effect, guests find he’s the knife-skewered victim – and then inspector Jack Holt is called in. A classic Dark House whodunit with a classic denouement, based on a play by Pulitzer Prize-winner Owen Davis, Capra’s first all-talkie and “the beginning of a true understanding of the skills of my craft.”
In lieu of the long-lost sound-on-disc track, the dialogue will be instantaneously dubbed by live actors, enhanced by live music and sound effects! Originally presented at Film Forum over 20 years ago, this unique event, produced by Bruce Goldstein, was the hit of the 2013 TCM Classic Film Festival in Hollywood. Approx. 90 min. Digital.
