A rare cinematic celebration of the king of the melodrama, Tod Slaughter.
Regular readers will be aware that we are big fans of the mighty Tod Slaughter here at The Reprobate, so you can be certain that we’ll be at London’s Cinema Museum of February 1st for a 35mm double bill of his movies.
Crimes at the Dark House and The Face at the Window will get rare screenings, with introductions by Jasper Sharp and Kip Xool – the latter the co-author of Mr Murder, the Slaughter biography. If you haven’t already snapped that up, copies will be on sale with the authors in attendance, and there’s every chance that there will be a Reprobate stall there too if your tastes run beyond British melodrama. And this is – let’s face it – a rare chance to meet with fellow Slaughter enthusiasts and discuss the finer points of his florid acting style.
It all kicks off at 2pm with tickets at £13 in advance or £15 on the door. Details here: http://www.cinemamuseum.org.uk/2019/a-slaughterous-afternoon-with-tod/
