The luminous Louise Brooks stars as a French typist whose life is turned upside down when she wins a beauty contest in San Sebastián. If you’ve loved Brooks in Pandora’s Box or Beggars of Life, this is a rare opportunity to see Cineteca Bologna's beautiful restoration of this unusual and beguiling film.
Dir: Augusto Genino, Italy, 1929/1930, 1hr 53m. With an introduction by Sheldon Hall, Sheffield Hallam University.
