Please join us for 3 on a Match, the first film in season 5 of Lincoln Theater’s Classic Film Club celebrating the films of the Pre-Code Era in cinema. We are pleased to be joined at each screening by film historian and CFC host, Jeannie MacDonald, for a pre-film introduction and post-screening talkback.
Mary (Joan Blondell), Vivian (Ann Dvorak) and Ruth (Bette Davis) are old friends who do some catching up after a chance meeting. Of the three women, Vivian, who married successful lawyer Robert (Warren William), seems to have the most glamourous life. Vivian really isn’t satisfied, though, and she soon deserts Robert and her son for Mike (Lyle Talbot), a mobster. Before long, Vivian is hooked on drugs, and Mike needs cash — so the gangster decides to kidnap Vivian’s own son for ransom.
Jeannie MacDonald returns to the Lincoln Theater to host Season 5 of our Classic Film Club series on Pre-Code Hollywood. A film historian and lifelong movie fan, Jeannie began her career as a producer at two Boston TV stations. After moving to Los Angeles, Jeannie wrote marketing copy for Paramount Television on the studio’s iconic Hollywood lot. As a freelancer, she has written movie copy for Warner Bros. and humor pieces for The Washington Post and Los Angeles Times. Jeannie hosts classic films around New England, and blogs for the Music Hall in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, where she lives with her husband John.
