      EVENT DETAILS
      "Capital Punishment" (Preferred Pictures Corporation, 1925)

      Vivacious Hollywood “It Girl” Clara Bow undertakes a “straight” role in this heated melodrama directed by James P. Hogan.  A man is voluntarily imprisoned on a trumped-up murder charge, as part of an exposé of the evils of the death penalty. The plan goes awry, and only Delia Tate (Bow) can save the man, with an appeal to the governor and a last-minute chase bearing crucial information, putting Bow’s emotional range and gusto for performance on full display. The cast includes Elliott Dexter, Joseph Kilgour, George Hackathorne and Margaret Livingston. 35mm film print from the Library of Congress Film Preservation Lab in 2007, 67 min. Also on the program, Buster Keaton’s classic comedy short “The Goat” (Metro, 1921). 35mm film print from the Library of Congress Film Preservation Lab in 2010, 23 min. Live musical accompaniment will be provided by Andrew Simpson.

      Programs are free and open to the public, but children 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult. Seating at the screenings is on a first-come, first-served basis unless otherwise noted. Short films may be shown before some features. 

      For general Packard Campus Theater information, call (540) 827-1079 ext. 79994 or (202) 707-9994.
