The Bowery screening
Tuesday, June 18 @ 19:30–21:02
The Dryden will screen The Bowery (Raoul Walsh, U.S. 1933, 92 min., 35mm) as part of the Riskin and Wray series.
In this rough-and-tumble pre-Code action comedy, Chuck Connors (Wallace Beery) and Steve Brodie (George Raft) are friendly rivals on New York's Bowery in the 1890s. Connors owns a fancy tavern and looks after a streetwise kid named Swipes McGurk (Jackie Cooper, reunited with Beery after The Champ), while Brodie is a daredevil willing to do nearly anything to get the better of Connors. When both men fall in love with Lucy Calhoun (Fay Wray), their friendship is put to the test.
