First World War Film Series: Hell’s Angels (1930)

hells_angelsThe First World War Film Series continues this evening at The Rooms in St. John’s, NL. The second in a series of film screenings to honour the 100th anniversary of Newfoundland’s involvement in the First World War, Hell’s Angels (1930) will be introduced by local filmmaker and film instructor Jenina MacGillivray. As one of Hollywood’s early “blockbusters”, this production marked the film debut of Jean Harlow, who was brought in to replace Norwegian silent film star Greta Nissen, once it was decided to turn this silent film into a “talkie”. Film starts at 7:00pm Cost: $10 (10% discount for members) (Klaus Ming February 2016).

    The best World War I film is the movie they’re making in The Stunt Man.

      I’d forgotten about The Stunt Man (1980) – I recall it being very good, and must revisit! Thanks 🙂
