"Peter Pan" (Paramount, 1924)

November 16, 2017, 7:30 p.m. - 9:30 p.m.
The first film adaptation of J.M. Barries enormously successful 1902 stage play "Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up," remains one of the silent eras most successful fantasies, notable not only for Betty Bronsons exquisitely stylized performance as Peter, but also for its elaborate settings and special effects. Directed by Herbert Brenon and featuring Mary Brian as Wendy and Anna May Wong as Tiger Lily, the film closely follows the plot of the original play and even goes so far as to incorporate much of its original stage dialogue in the intertitles. Thought to be lost for decades, James Card, film restorer and curator of George Eastman House in Rochester, New York, discovered a well-preserved copy in a vault at the Eastman School of Music in the 1950s, and made a preservation of that source. Film historian David Pierce (now assistant chief of the Library of Congress National Audio Visual Conservation Center) discovered an additional and hitherto unknown 16 mm copy at the Disney Studios that had been made when the company acquired the rights to the property in 1938. A new restoration was undertaken by the George Eastman House combining the two sources in 1994. "Peter Pan" was added to the National Film Registry in 2000. London-based musician Stephen Horne will provide live musical accompaniment for the film.

"The Scarlet Letter" (MGM, 1927)

November 17, 2017, 7:30 p.m. - 9:30 p.m.
Lillian Gish stars in this adaptation of Nathaniel Hawthornes 1850 novel as Hester Prynne, who engages in an adulterous relationship with the Rev. Dimmesdale (Lars Hanson) in Puritan New England. Gish, one of the most respected and popular actresses of her time, managed to get the film made by winning over a number of women's and church groups around the country that considered the subject matter of the book unacceptable for the movies. Her pristine reputation, combined with a tasteful script by the great Hollywood screenwriter Frances Marion, caused them to change their minds and give the project their blessing. Directed by Swedish actor and filmmaker Victor Seastrom (Sjostrom), the film also stars Henry B. Walthall, Karl Dane, William H. Tooker and Marcelle Corday. London-based musician Stephen Horne will provide live accompaniment for the film.

"Casablanca" (Warner Bros., 1942)

November 30, 2017, 7:30 p.m. - 9:30 p.m.
One of the most beloved of American films, this captivating romantic adventure directed by Michael Curtiz tells the story of world-weary ex-freedom fighter Rick Blaine (Humphrey Bogart), who runs a nightclub in Casablanca during the early part of WWII. Despite pressure from the local authorities, led by the wily Capt. Renault (Claude Rains), Rick's cafe has become a haven for refugees. One of those refugees is Rick's true love, who deserted him when the Nazis invaded Paris (Ingrid Bergman), and her Resistance leader husband (Paul Henreid). How the triangle would resolve itself wasn't known even to cast members until the last days of filming. The film's dialogue and the timeliness of world events swirling around Casablanca, Morocco, made the eventual best picture winner a favorite with wartime audiences. "Casablanca" was among the first movies added to the National Film Registry in its inaugural year, 1989. This month marks the 75th anniversary of the films premiere.
