Louise Brooks stars again in Beggars of Life

If you live in or near Los Angeles, don't miss the special, August 1st screening of Beggars of Life at the Cinefamily theater (611 N Fairfax Avenue) in Los Angeles. Cinefamily has arranged to show a rare 35mm archival print of the film from the George Eastman House. If you have only seen this superb 1928 William Wellman-directed film on YouTube, or on the poor quality DVD's floating around the web, then you were likely disappointed by how dark and fuzzy those versions of Beggars of Life look. The George Eastman House print is bright and clear. This is the print to see! To find out more about the August 1st screening of Beggars of Life, starring the one and only Louise Brooks, check out this article on examiner.com

If you need another bit of incentive to attend this special event, then know that the Cinefamily Theater has arranged to obtain an autographed hardback copy of Laura Moriarty's new novel, The Chaperone, to give away as a door prize. Cool! If you happen to attend this special screening, please post a comment or two in the comments field below.
