  • The Docks of New York - Wednesday Classic Film Series
    Wednesday, September 23, 2015 - 7:30pm
    Auditorium

    Roughneck stoker Bill Roberts (George Bancroft) gets into all sorts of trouble during a brief shore leave when he falls hard for Mae (Betty Compson), a wise and weary dance-hall girl, in director Josef von Sternberg’s evocative portrait of lower-class waterfront folk. Fog-enshrouded cinematography by Harold Rosson (The Wizard of Oz), expressionist set design by Hans Dreier (Sunset Boulevard), and sensual performances by Bancroft and Compson make this one of the legendary director’s finest works, and one of the most exquisitely crafted films of the silent era.

    1928
    76 minutes
    PRESENTED IN 16mm
    Live piano accompaniment by Dave Drazin.
