LADY WINDERMERE’S FAN
Sunday, January 2 at 4:30 ♪
Rare tinted 16mm Kodascope print
♪ Live Piano Accompaniment by Steve Sterner
Based on the play by Oscar Wilde.
Starring May McAvoy (as Lady Windermere), Ronald Colman, Irene Rich
(1925, Ernst Lubitsch) May McAvoy’s long-lost and now-notorious mom Irene Rich returns, but demands money from her aristocratic son-in-law for her silence, then tries to stymie Lord Ronald Colman’s designs on her daughter – but there’s that darn fan to be accounted for. Witty visual storytelling makes up for the absence of Oscar Wilde’s epigrams. 16mm. Approx. 60 min.
