Tuesday 5 February Film Show
PHCL Film Show presents
A silent classic, projected on film
 
The Eagle
Starring Rudolph Valentino
Directed by Clarence Brown
USA   1925   80 minutes
 
Following the huge success of his previous visits, Kevin Brownlow returns to introduce another silent classic.  This time Kevin will be showing his own film print of one of Rudolph Valentino’s finest films.  Based on a Pushkin short story, it centres upon a Russian Cossack officer (Valentino) who deserts rather than make love to Catherine the Great (Louise Dresser).  
Sentenced to death with a reward on his head for shunning the lusty Czarina, he escapes and becomes the Black Eagle, a dashing masked vigilante, and seeks to avenge the death of his father.   However, our hero’s mission is complicated when he falls in love with his arch-enemy’s daughter (Vilma Banky) and consequently adopts a further disguise as a French tutor.   Valentino delivers a charismatic and seductive performance in this delightful, witty adventure that shines with early Hollywood's technical advances and stylish production values. 
 
With live musical accompaniment by Stephen Horne

Doors open 7.15pm, Introduction 7.45pm, Film 8.00pm        £8.00, in cash, including a glass of wine.   Tickets, up to two per person, on sale at the Library, Sharpleshall Street, NW1 8YN (on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays) or on the door.
