Screening & Live Event
A Girl in Every Port
With live music by Donald Sosin
Dir. Howard Hawks. 1928, 64 mins. 35mm print from the collection of George Eastman House. With Victor McLaglen, Louise Brooks, Robert Armstrong. This cynical sex farce about two globetrotting sailors (McLaglen and Armstrong) who fight over a woman (Brooks) and then become best friends was described by Hawks as “a love story between two men.” The film is notable for bringing cult screen icon-to-be Louise Brooks to the attention of director G.W. Pabst for his upcoming Pandora’s Box.
