Mantrap

Location: Redstone Theater

With live accompaniment by Makia Matsumura on May 14.

Dir. Victor Fleming. 1926, 86 mins. Archival 35mm print courtesy of the Library of Congress. With Clara Bow, Percy Marmont, Ernest Torrence, Ford Sterling, Eugene Pallette. Fleming’s jazzy, vivacious western parody follows a Minneapolis manicurist (21-year-old Bow in her breakout performance) as she negotiates the competing affections of her burly trader husband (Torrence) and an effete New York divorce lawyer (Marmont) amid the picturesque wilderness of central Canada. Shot on location by James Wong Howe with a double eye for large-scale scenic beauty and discreet comic detail, the film would become one of Bow’s most beloved pictures and her own personal favorite.
