STG Presents Trader Joe’s Silent Movie Mondays: MY BEST GIRL (1927) at The Paramount Theatre on Monday, June 8, 2015. Featuring Christian Elliott on the Mighty Wurlitzer.
This romantic comedy starring Mary Pickford as a stockroom girl and Buddy Rogers as the store’s millionaire son, is directed by Sam Taylor, and produced by Pickford. The movie is notable for co-starring Rogers, who would be Pickford's future husband 10 years after the film. Charles Rosher received an Academy Award nomination for his cinematography of this film in 1928. It was Pickford's last silent film.
Restored in 2015 by the UCLA Film & Television Archive with funding provided by The Mary Pickford Foundation, The Packard Humanities Institute and The Film Foundation
Join us after the film for CineClub, a community discussion in The Paramount Bar about the film, covering silent film trivia questions and exploring silent film in general. CineClub host is Dr. Jennifer Bean, Director of Cinema & Media Studies at the University of Washington.
Trader Joe’s Silent Movie Mondays celebrates the 25th ANNIVERSARY OF THE FILM FOUNDATION by featuring four 35mm films preserved with funding from the organization. Founded in 1990 by Martin Scorsese, the foundation is dedicated to protecting motion picture history by providing annual support for preservation and restoration projects at the leading film archives. The Film Foundation is instrumental in raising awareness of the need for film preservation, and has helped save over 620 motion pictures.
“Movies touch our hearts, awaken our vision, and change the way we see things. They take us to other places. They open doors and minds. Movies are the memories of our lifetime. We need to keep them alive.” --MARTIN SCORSESE
