A Beggars of Life revival
The 1928 Louise Brooks film, Beggars of Life, seems to be undergoing a revival. (More at examiner.com).
On Sunday, September 19, Beggars of Life was screened at the 30th Cambridge Film Festival in Cambridge, England. Live musical accompaniment was provided by the Dodge Brothers, a contemporary skiffle / rockabilly band out of England who play American-style “roots music.” The Cambridge screening was the second time in recent months that the Dodge Brothers have accompanied the film.
In August, Beggars of Life was screened as part of The Hollywood Heritage "Silents Under the Stars" series at the Paramount Ranch near Los Angeles, California.
It will be screened next in Seattle, Washington as part of the "Trader Joe's Silent Movie Mondays" series at the Paramount Theatre on October 11th at 7:00 pm.
And again, at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art on Saturday, October 23 at 7:30 pm. This screening, a 20th Anniversary Tribute to The Film Foundation, honors the institution which helped fund the George Eastman House restoration which has helped spur the current revival.
