SLIFF Day 9 Recap
I've been away with lots of really annoying work stuff. I do apologize....
There was a lot to do on this the last weekend of the festival. Despite a wonderfully array of films i went to the Art Museum to ssee "The Iron Horse."
I have been looking forward to this since I first heard about in the spring. it was not a let down!
THE IRON HORSE
Friday night's screening of "The Iron Horse" was amazing. For starters it was great to see so many people at the Art Museum for the film. Second, the print was gorgeous. Third, the combination of an epic film and the organ wizardry of Stan Kann provided an unparralled film experience. As for the movie it was everyhting you would expect from an epic film. Considering it was made in 1924 it really was bold and inventive.
I was thrilled with both silent films offerings this year and hope that Cinema St. Louis continues the tradition with future festivals.
