“One of Capra’s finest pictures.” (Martin Scorsese)

New DCP restoration!

With introduction by Barbara Stanwyck biographer Victoria Wilson. In the midst of the Chinese Civil War, a beautiful American missionary (Barbara Stanwyck) gets tangled up with a Chinese warlord, and sparks fly. A subtle, passionate love story, this underappreciated drama by a young Frank Capra (It Happened One Night) is one of the first films to deal with interracial sexual attraction.

After the screening, Victoria Wilson will sign copies of A Life of Barbara Stanwyck: Steel-True 1907–1940. It is the first volume of the first full-scale biography of the actress, who appeared in 88 movies over four decades. Books sold by The Village Bookstore.
