NEW DIGITAL CINEMA RESTORATION.

Once again The Heights is presenting a long lost silent film! Why Be Good? was considered a lost film since a fire at Warner Bros in the 1950's wiped out the last known existing prints, but a lone surviving print was discovered in an Italian film Archive by Film Historian Joe Yranski in 2002. After years of negotiations and the generous support of Warner Bros, The UCLA Film and Television Archive and The Vitatphone project the film has been restored to its original glory, complete with its' jazzy toe tapping original Vitaphone score!

In this Jazz age comedy Colleen Moore plays Pert Kelly a good girl with a wild reputation. When the bosses son (Neil Hamilton) starts to fall for her, he decides to find out if her wild reputation is for real or just a put on.

This special Screening will also include a special pre show organ concert by: HARVEY GUSTAFSON at the keyboard of the Heights Mighty Wurlitzer!
