STG Presents Trader Joe's Silent Movie Mondays - Show People at The Paramount Theatre on Monday, June 16, 2014. Featuring Jim Riggs on the Mighty Wurlitzer Organ!
The second film in our Significant Silents series is SHOW PEOPLE (1928), an American silent comedy directed by King Vidor. The film was a starring vehicle for actress Marion Davies and actor William Haines and included notable cameo appearances by many film personalities of the day, including Charlie Chaplin, Douglas Fairbanks and John Gilbert.
The film is a lighthearted look at Hollywood at the end of the silent film era and is considered Davies' best role. In 2003, the Library of Congress selected SHOW PEOPLE for preservation in the National Film Registry, which includes films that are “culturally, historically or aesthetically significant.”
Opening short Plane Crazy, the first produced short of Disney's Mickey Mouse.
CineClub discussion afterwards in Lobby Bar, led by local filmmaker John Gordon Hill.
Running time for feature film is approximately 79 minutes.
Significant Silents of 1928 is a four-part film series focusing on films originally presented in 1928, the year The Paramount Theatre opened its doors.
