Love Em and Leave Em, the delightful Louise Brooks film from 1926, will be shown on Sunday June 21at the Australian Cinémathèque, which is part of the Queensland Art Gallery / Gallery of Modern Art, one of the largest public art museums in Australia. For more information on the 11:00 am screening, visit

According to the email I received from Australian Cinémathèque, "The Cinémathèque is currently screening a film program titled ‘Hollywood on the Hudson’ accompanying the ‘American Impressionism and Realism, A Landmark Exhibition from The Met’, The Metropolitan Museum of the Arts, New York at the Queensland Art Gallery.

‘Hollywood on the Hudson’ film program features classic films from the 1920s and 1930s which encapsulate a rich, vibrant and culturally aware New York City at a time of great economic and social change. As part of this program we will be screening Love 'em and Leave 'em 1926 / Dir: Frank Tuttle starring Louise Brooks on 21 June. All films in the ‘Hollywood on the Hudson’ program are screened with free admission and no bookings are required. Silent films in the program, including Love 'em and Leave 'em 1926 are accompanied live by the Wurlitzer Organ."
