American Cinematheque screens producer/star Douglas Fairbanks' 1927 swashbuckler The Gaucho, with live musical accompaniment, followed by a fascinating discussion of the film's magnificent art direction and its influence on another filmmaker, Gene Kelly. Carl Oscar Borg's enormous set was built to be both visually striking and to withstand Fairbanks action-filled stunts, which inspired Kelly's production design as a director. Not only will you see the full, fun Fairbanks movie, in which he plays an amoral Bandit King in the Andes, but you'll also see a clip reel featuring excerpts from Fairbanks' other adventure films, as well as Kelly's work in The Pirate, The Three Musketeers and Singin' in the Rain. Professor John Tibbetts of the University of Kansas (author of Douglas Fairbanks and the American Century) and special guest Patricia Ward Kelly, Gene Kelly's widow and biographer, will delve into the relationship between set design and dance and stunt choreography, in a panel moderated by John Muto, the founder of the Art Directors Guild Film Society.

The Egyptian Theater was a fantastic setting for a tremendous rock documentary about the making of L.A. Woman. This 40th Anniversary premiere was a rocking celebration of the Doors legacy. The appearance of Robbie Krieger and Ray Manzarek enhanced the evening by providing personal insight and anecdotes. Engineer Bruce Botnick discussed the creative approach and production process.
