Capital Celluloid 2021 — Day 78: Mon Aug 2

Dangerous (Green, 1935): BFI Southbank, NFT2, 6.15pm

This 35mm presentation (also being screened on August 13th and 18th) is part of the Bette Davis season. You can find the full details of the season here.

BFI Southbank introduction:
Joyce Heath, a once-successful actress now down on her luck, is taken in by an engaged architect who was inspired by her work and wants to help her. Her warnings that she’s jinxed are not without reason, and it soon becomes clear that she has plenty to hide. Davis won her first Oscar® for the role of Joyce but always felt that it was a consolation prize for not having been nominated for Of Human Bondage. Either way, she truly shines in the role.

Here (and above) is the trailer.
