THE BLUE ANGEL

(1929, Josef von Sternberg) Lured to the über-seedy nightclub “Der Blaue Engel,” prim professor Emil Jannings begins a relentlessly downward spiral after encountering Marlene Dietrich’s Lola Lola. Dietrich’s star-making and perhaps most iconic role, her gartered legs astride an on-stage chair as she throatily sings “Falling in Love Again.” “Suggests sex without romance, love or sentiment.” – Pauline Kael. 35mm. In German with English subtitles. Approx. 106 mins.
3:10, 7:20

A WOMAN OF AFFAIRS 

(1928, Clarence Brown) Reckless widow Greta Garbo – inhabiting a mansion “decorated in High Zigzag” – dallies with John Gilbert and shaver Doug Fairbanks Jr., in this adaptation of Michael Arlen’s steamy bestseller The Green Hat – so notorious that the title had to be changed and V.D. eliminated from the plot. 35mm. Silent, with original synchronized musical score. Approx. 96 mins.
