Sailor’s Luck

Part of Dave Kehr: When Movies Mattered
Saturday, March 26, 2011, 2:00 p.m.

With Dave Kehr in person

Dir. Raoul Walsh. 1933, 64 mins.

35mm print. Written by Bert Hanlon. With James Dunn, Sally Eilers, and Victor Jory. Sailors on shore leave, an elusive young woman, and a dance marathon, are all part of the action in this in this lively Raoul Walsh pre-Code delight, shown here in a brand new 35mm print. In his lengthy and essential appreciation of Walsh, Kehr wrote, “I can think of no other case of a filmmaker whose work was so widely, and rightly, perceived as important, but yet received so little intelligent attention.” After the screening, Kehr will discuss his book in a discussion moderated by Chief Curator David Schwartz. Followed by a signing in the Museum Store. 

Free with Museum admission.
