The West Coast premiere screening of the film, which has recently been restored by the AcademyFilm Archive and 20th Century Fox in collaboration with The Film Foundation, will be preceded by photos and clips commemorating the 25th anniversary of The Film Foundation.


LOIS WEBER IN EARLY HOLLYWOOD, featuring a screening of "Shoes" (1916)

Thursday, December 3, at 7:30 p.m. 

Linwood Dunn Theater, Hollywood


One of the most important and prolific directors of the silent film era, who also happens to be one of Hollywood's few women directors to this day, Lois Weber was also a writer, producer, actress and head of her own production company who forged the way for filmmakers who saw film as an opportunity to inject their own ideas and philosophies into the burgeoning entertainment industry. The Academy Film Scholars presentation by Shelley Stamp, professor of film and digital media at UC Santa Cruz and author of the recently published Lois Weber in Early Hollywood, will be followed by a screening of Weber's 1916 film "Shoes." Based on the short story by Stella Wynne Herron, "Shoes" tells the plight of a young girl whose financial desperation leads her to prostitution. The film will be screened from a print recently restored by EYE Film Museum.

In this 1940 classic, Barbara Stanwyck stars as a shoplifting New Yorker who after a series of mishaps, ends up spending a family Christmas at prosecutor Fred MacMurray's Indiana home. With impeccable performances from such venerable actors as Beulah Bondi and Sterling Holloway, a warm and sharp-witted script by Preston Sturges, and deft direction by Mitchell Leisen, "Remember the Night" serves up a true holiday treat. The screening, from a 35mm print courtesy of the UCLA Film & Television Archive and Universal Studios, will be preceded by festive trailers and vintage holiday advertisements from the Academy Film Archive's Packard Humanities Institute Collection.
