HOLLYWOOD EVENTS

Cinecon 47 at the Egyptian Theater

 

 

To Pay Tribute to The National Film Preservation Foundation

 

The 47th Annual Cinecon Classic Film Festival at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood, California will be held over the Labor Day Weekend, September 1-5, 2011. Tribute will be paid to the National Film Preservation Foundation with screenings of two recent NFPF funded projects, The Active Life of Dolly the Dailies Episode 5, and The Chinese Fan, produced by Thomas A. Edison, and the 1920 Metro Pictures film, Stronger than Death, starring legendary Russian actress Alla Nazimova.

 

The Active Life of Dolly the Dailies is presented by the Academy Film Archive through a collaboration of the New Zealand Film Archive, the National Film Preservation Foundation, and the American archival community. Stronger Than Death was preserved by the George Eastman House through a grant funded by the National Film Preservation Foundation.

 

Both films are two of nearly forty rare and unusual films to be screened during the five-day Cinecon Classic Film Festival. Other titles scheduled include Raymond Griffith’s Civil War comedy Hands Up! (1926); Stormy Weather (1943) featuring Lena Horne, Bill “Bojangles” Robinson, Cab Calloway, Thomas “Fats” Waller and the Nicholas Brothers; Beauty’s Worth (1922) produced by newspaper mogul William Randolph Hearst and starring Marion Davies; Blazing Days (1927) an early effort by future Oscar-winning director William Wyler, and The Brasher Doubloon (1947) a film noir classic based on Raymond Chandler’s novel, “The High Window,” with George Montgomery in the role of detective Phillip Marlowe.

 

In addition to the film screenings, Cinecon offers a movie memorabilia and collectibles show during the festival at the Hollywood Renaissance Hotel, 1755 North Highland Avenue in Hollywood.

 

If you love movies, Cinecon 47 is the place to be over the Labor Day weekend.
