San Francisco Silent Film Festival 2007

The line-up for this year's San Francisco Silent Film Festival has just been announced. And I am very excited, because this year, the festival will be debuting a brand new 35mm print of Beggars of Life (1928), starring Louise Brooks. I hope all Brooks fans can attend this screening of a rarely shown Brooks' film. It's a good one!

"Where can you see a duck wreck havoc in a movie theater, a prince fall in love with a barmaid AND a high school atheist swear allegiance on a monkey?" At this year's festival ! Here's the line-up.
