So This is Paris
So This Is Paris (1926) The overlooked Monte Blue, one of Warner Brothers’ big names of the 1920s, stars with Patsy Ruth Miller in this frothy confection directed by Ernst Lubitsch. After years in Germany Lubitsch had come to America in 1923 and established his “Lubitsch Touch” in Hollywood with films like this, The Marriage Circle (’24) and Lady Windermere’s Fan (’25). Another great director, Leo McCarey, guides Charley Chase through his misadventures in our two-reel opener Inno…

A Gentleman of Paris
A Gentleman of Paris (1927) Adolph Menjou was the epitome of sophisticated comedy in the 1920s. After his star-making turn in Charlie Chaplin’s A Woman of Paris (’23) he went on to headline in Are Parents People? (’25), Service for Ladies (’27), and many others. This is one of the few surviving films of Harry d’Abbadie d’Arrast, an Argentine émigré who had been an assistant to Chaplin before going on with his own directorial career. First on the bill we have Stan Laurel and Tyler Brooke i…

Chicago
Chicago (1927) Former Mack Sennett bathing beauty Phyllis Haver gives a spirited tour-de- force performance as Roxie Hart in this original film version of the much-adapted play by Maurine Dallas Watkins, of which the current revival of the John Kander and Fred Ebb musical take on the story is celebrating its 20th anniversary on Broadway.
