Blackmail (1929)

Denver Silent Film Festival, Alamo Drafthouse, Denver

Alfred Hitchcock's last silent film (remade as his first talkie) is a tight, well-made thriller. A woman commits murder in self-defense, but as usual the cover-up is worse than the crime as her boyfriend--a policeman--is assigned to the case, and a mysterious stranger attempts to use his knowledge for his own gain.

Beggars of Life (1928)

Union Colony Civic Center, Greeley Colorado

Louise Brooks and Richard Arlen take to riding the rails to escape a manslaughter charge. In this moody adventure set in hobo subculture, America is shown as a place of formless threats and constant danger. Recently restored by the George Eastman Museum, this is widely regarded as Louise Brooks' finest American film. "...in Beggars of Life, Sauer and company are once again authoritative and expressively pitch-perfect. But the players are not there to lead, distract or showboat, but to underscore, strictly in partnership with the film."
