"Virtuoso: The Olga Samaroff Story"
(61m, USA) East Coast Premiere
Director Donna Kline
Documentary

Virtuoso, a 60-minute documentary film, is the true, yet untold story of one of America's great female concert pianists of the early 20th century. Overshadowed by her famous husband, Leopold Stokowski, whose talent she first recognized and career she fostered, Samaroff was at the very center of a vibrant American musical life in the early 20th century. Based on the book, "An American Virtuoso on the World Stage," this documentary follows her life from Texas (as Lucy Hickenlooper) to her rise as Olga Samaroff, the celebrated concert star of her time.
Special Guest: To be announced

SHOWCASE C ($10):

8:00pm
"Steamboat Bill, Jr." - silent film with live piano accompaniment
(70m, USA)
Director Charles Reisner

Steamboat Bill, Jr. contains some of Buster Keaton's best and most spectacular sight gags in a silent movie. Keaton plays Willie Canfield, the namby-pamby son of rough-and-tumble steamboat captain Steamboat Bill Canfield (Ernest Torrence). When he's not trying to make a man out of his boy, the captain is carrying on a feud with Tom Carter (Tom McGuire), the wealthy owner of a fancy new ferryboat. Carter has a pretty daughter, Mary King (Marion Byron), with whom Willie falls in love.
