True to the vaudeville genre, the evening concludes on the big screen with Porky Pig in Curtain Razor (1949) followed by Buster Keaton’s 1922 comedy classic Cops plus the Technicolor short _Calling All Girls _(1942).
From the late 1800’s through the early 20th Century, vaudeville was the common people’s theatrical experience. Across America and around the world, the wildly popular genre featured variety acts of countless descriptions and later included film programs. Alex Film Society’s annual recreation of the nostalgic genre is the only vaudeville show produced regularly in Los Angeles.
