The San Francisco Silent Film Festival will screen the silent version recently restored by the Cineteca di Bologna in Italy. The film's running time is given as approximately 108 minutes. (By comparison, the running time found on the KINO DVD is 93 minutes.) Accompanying the July 18th screening is British musician Stephen Horne. The LBS interview with Horne ran earlier on this blog.
In the July 11th New York Times there was a fantastic article about musician John Zorn. He is best known to fans of Louise Brooks for his mid-1990's collaborative CDs News for Lulu and More News for Lulu, each with musicians Bill Frisell and George Lewis. Just recently, I noticed this video clip from the end of Prix de Beauté which features music-sound by Zorn. It is kinda-out there, but it also works. Spoiler alert if you haven't seen the film.
