A Girl in Every Port screens in NYC

The 1928 Louise Brooks film, A Girl in Every Port, will be shown in New York city on Sunday at the Museum of the Moving Image. The screening led the New Yorker magazine to write-up the film nearly 90 years after its debut. Read the New Yorker piece by Richard Brody here.

Dir. Howard Hawks. 1928, 64 mins. 35mm print from the collection of George Eastman House. With Victor McLaglen, Louise Brooks, Robert Armstrong. This cynical sex farce about two globetrotting sailors (McLaglen and Armstrong) who fight over a woman (Brooks) and then become best friends was described by Hawks as “a love story between two men.” The film is notable for bringing cult screen icon-to-be Louise Brooks to the attention of director G.W. Pabst for his upcoming Pandora’s Box.
