Ah, yes. It's Memorial Day weekend so it must be time for Cinevent! To all those out there reading this, Friday May 22nd starts one of the "must go to" film festivals in the US, Cinevent in Columbus Ohio.
They are showing many wonderful films including "Trail of the Vigilantes" (1940), Lon Chaney and Lupe Velez in "Where East Is East" (1929), and Erich von Stroheim's 1928 feature "The Wedding March". Plus, they also sprinkle they weekened with Charley Chase and Laurel and Hardy films and the Saturday morning animation festival, which is ALWAYS a good time.
The festival is augmented by over 170 tables of memrobilia dealers with posters, photographs, magazines, DVD's, just about everything a collector could hope for! Go to their website, here, for more details.
The three photographs here are from the Janet Gaynor and Charles Farrell 1929 feature "Lucky Star" which is scheduled for Sunday afternoon at 1:30PM. See you there!!!
