Renowned film critic and historian Leonard Maltin joins us to present a rarely seen Frank Capra film in glorious 35mm followed by a conversation about classic films and Maltin’s career.
Maltin has been an outspoken fan of Capra’s 1933 gem, Lady for a Day, for many years and was a great supporter of the pristine BluRay release of the film last year. Now, Maltin joins the Paramount in bringing you a very rare screening of the film in 35mm, courtesy of the Frank Capra estate and their generous loan of the print from their vault.
Lady for a Day tells the poignant story of Apple Annie, an impoverished, elderly Times Square vagrant who pretends to be a member of high society in the letters she writes to her beloved daughter in Europe. When she learns that her daughter is bringing her fiancé, a member of the Spanish aristocracy, to New York City, Annie must find a way to make her false tales of high society a reality. If you usually need a tissue for It’s a Wonderful Life, you’d better bring the whole box.
After the film, Maltin will join us to discuss his career, Lady for a Day, and other wonderful classic films like it that are becoming increasingly unavailable with each passing year.
Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see the man in person and talk classic films with the foremost experts on the subject!
