Please join us for Baby Face, the second 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.
This film follows the sexual escapades of Lily Powers (Barbara Stanwyck), the beautiful daughter of a speakeasy owner. Lily’s dreary life in Pennsylvania takes a sudden turn when her father is killed in an accident. Unmoved by her father’s death, Lily, along with friend Chico (Theresa Harris), jumps on a freight train and seduces a worker to avoid being arrested. Now in New York City, Lily uses her beauty and sexual prowess to seduce a string of successful men as she works her way to the top of a banking empire.
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.
