Review: All Our Tragic Part 4

Earlier this week, I saw Part 4 of the Hypocrites’ All Our Tragic. This is the twelve hour long piece of all thirty-two Greek tragedies.

Review: Our Dancing Daughters

This weekend, I saw Our Dancing Daughters (1928) at the Music Box’s Second Silent Saturday. This film was fantastic in so many ways. Joan Crawford plays the lead, a wealthy flapper, and is absolutely wonderful. The basic plot is that Joan Crawford is the life of the party. She meets a stranger and falls for […]
