John Barrymore in The Beloved Rogue: Silent Film With Live Music
Experience one of cinema's earlier works on the big screen at The Alden with The Beloved Rogue
, a 1927 silent film featuring John Barrymore. The charismatic and larger-than-life Barrymore was in his prime when he portrayed the legendary 15th-century poet and thief François Villon. Barrymore, of the illustrious acting family -- he was Drew Barrymore's paternal grandfather -- was the Brad Pitt or the George Clooney (depending on your tastes) of his day, with his chiseled features earning him the nickname "The Great Profile." This historical adventure combines lavish Hollywood production elements, beautifully detailed sets and good old-fashioned swashbuckling. In it, the crotchety King Louis XI (Conrad Veidt) appoints the mischievous Villon king for a day, which proves to be a blessing when Villon rounds up the thieves, tramps, trollops and other assorted Parisian lowlifes to defend the walled city against the invading Burgundians. Pianist Ben Model will compose and play accompanying soundtrack music on the spot.
