"EVERY NIGHT AT EIGHT" (1935)

35MM PRESENTATION.

In Alice Faye's 10 year reign as the Queen of the 20th Century-fox studio she was only loaned out twice, the first was to Paramount for Every Night At Eight, and the second was to Universal for You're A Sweetheart. We are presenting both of these rare films in one fun filled evening. Every Night at Eight is the entertaining story of Faye, Langford, and Kelly singing their way to fame with bandleader Raft. The Dorothy Fields - Jimmy McHugh score includes the classics I Feel a Song Comin' On and I'm in the Mood for Love.

"YOU'RE A SWEETHEART" (1937)

35MM PRESENTATION.

The title song You're a Sweetheart, written by Jimmy McHugh and Harold Adamson has since become a standard, but this film is not just about the singing, it also features some great dancing by Alice and George Murphy as well as some great art deco sets (it was nominated for an Oscar for Best Art Direction).

35MM PRINT FROM THE LIBRARY OF CONGRESS!

Starring MARION DAVIES, MARIE DRESSLER, LAWRENCE GRAY, DELL HENDERSON. Directed by KING VIDOR. The Patsy is a hilarious silent film from director King Vidor and if anybody believes that Susan Alexander Kane was an actual representation of Marion Davies, then they better watch (The Patsy) as Marion is a delight in it.

Davies plays the ignored youngest child of bossy mom Dressler and henpecked father Henderson. In order to get some attention she transforms herself into a vivacious flapper to woo her sophisticated older sister's boyfriend. Davies impersonates Mae Murray, Pola Negri, and Lillian Gish in this film and they are a riot.

This special Screening will be accompanied by: HARVEY GUSTAFSON at the keyboard of the Heights Mighty Wurlitzer!
