Please join us for Red-Headed Woman, the third 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.
The legendary Jean Harlow delivers a star-making performance in this provocative pre-Hays Code comedy as a charming gold digger who sleeps her way to fortune. Secretary Lillian Andrews sets her sights on her boss, eventually luring him away from his happy marriage to his childhood sweetheart. But instead of making a big splash in society, she is rejected. After casting her spell on a coal magnate, Lillian sets her sights on a French chauffeur (Charles Boyer). The film is often cited as one of the motion pictures that brought about more stringent censorship.
Jeannie MacDonald returns to the Lincoln Theater to host Season 5 ofour 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.
