THE WAY OF THE STRONG
Monday, October 20
Live piano accompaniment by Steve Sterner
(1928) Ugly gangster “Handsome” Williams falls in love with a blind violinist. Capra consciously experimenting with drama, revitalizing genre clichés. Approx. 61 min. 35mm.
“A moody gangster movie whose sheer quirkiness and seemingly uncharacteristic themes reveal Capra’s darker recesses.”
– Joseph McBride
