DIRTY GERTIE FROM HARLEM U.S.A.

7:00 ONLY

Monday, March 7

(1946, Spencer Williams) In this unauthorized retelling of Maugham’s Rain (see Sadie Thompson on March 22), nightclub chantootsie Francine Everett arrives on a Caribbean island to “entertain” the GI’s and locals, inciting the wrath of a self-righteous missionary. Director Williams appears in drag as a voodoo fortuneteller – inexplicably. Restored by Southern Methodist University.  Plus Williams’ recently-rediscovered HOT BISKITS (1929), comedy about a high-stakes game of mini-golf. DCP restorations. Approx. 70 mins.
