  • Chicago - Wednesday Classic Film Series
    Wednesday, September 30, 2015 - 1:00pm
    Auditorium

    Based on a true crime story, the movie is about a wild jazz-loving and boozing wife Roxie Hart (Phyllis Haver) who kills her boyfriend (Robert Edeson) in cold blood after he leaves her, and how she finagles her way out being convicted. The characters of Roxie Hart and Velma Kelly were inspired by the real-life cases of two Chicago women -- Beaulah Annan and Belva Gaertner -- who each murdered their lovers in 1924. Both women were tried in separate cases, which became media sensations in Chicago, and both were acquitted. Playwright Maurine Dallas Watkins covered both trials as a reporter for the "Chicago Tribune," and adapted her experiences into the play, "Chicago."

    1927
    118 minutes
    PRESENTED IN DCP
    Live piano accompaniment by Dave Drazin.
