Featured Screening: A Kiss from Mary Pickford at MoMA
MoMA‘s Mezhrabpom: The Red Dream Factory continues with A Kiss from Mary Pickford, which concerns a lovesick movie ticket taker whose object of affection spurns his advances because he isn’t famous enough. When Douglas Fairbanks and Mary Pickford come to town, the later plants a famous kiss on the hero’s face—catapulting him to national celebrity and sending him on a chase from the ladies. A Kiss from Mary Pickford is notable as a rare crossover between Hollywood and the studio known for its Communist ideology.
One of Spectacle‘s most reliably fantastic coteries of live scorers, Silver Process, returns tonight with a live score to Germaine Dulac‘s The Seashell and the Clergyman. This surrealist film was scripted by Antonin Artaud, who later disowned and then championed the film; it shares a good deal of similarities with Un Chien Andalou, which it predates by a year.
