Film History 101

As our film heritage becomes more and more digitized, it is harder and harder for audiences to see important films in the manner in which they were originally meant to be presented: in a theater, on film, with an audience. Film History 101 is our modest attempt to keep this tradition alive. Once a month, we'll present a selection that transcends "classic" status to that of "essential"—films that are widely recognized as among the greatest the art of moving pictures has to offer.

Recently restored by MoMA, this classic film features Hollywood’s first power couple, United Artists cofounders Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks, sharing the screen for the first, and only, time.

The Taming of the Shrew offers a lavish and at times hilarious showcase for the legendary couple. Christel Schmidt, editor of the recent book Mary Pickford: Queen of the Movies, introduces the film and signs books afterward. (66 mins., 35mm)
