Sailor’s Luck


35mm print. Written by Bert Hanlon. With James Dunn, Sally Eilers, and Victor Jory. Sailors on shore leave, an elusive young woman, and a dance marathon, are all part of the action in this in this lively Raoul Walsh pre-Code delight, shown here in a brand new 35mm print. In his lengthy and essential appreciation of Walsh, Kehr wrote, “I can think of no other case of a filmmaker whose work was so widely, and rightly, perceived as important, but yet received so little intelligent attention.” After the screening, Kehr will discuss his book in a discussion moderated by Chief Curator David Schwartz. Followed by a signing in the Museum Store. 

Free with Museum admission.
