Capital Celluloid 2020 – Day 13: Mon Jan 13

Fast and Loose (Newmeyer, 1930): BFI Southbank, NFT3, 9pm

This 35mm presentation, a very rare screening of this Pre-Code film, is part of the Carole Lombard season at BFI Southbank. You can find the full details here.

BFI introduction:
A rich man’s son falls for a good-natured chorus girl (Carole Lombard), and his rebellious daughter (MIriam Hopkins) falls in love with a mechanic. While Twentieth Century and It Happened One Night are often considered the first screwball comedies, Lombard considered this earlier Preston Sturges-penned film a pioneer of the genre.
Miriam Bale

Here (and above) is an extract.
