Wilton’s Music Hall Cinema Club: The Blue Angel July 22nd

This summer Wilton’s resident film buffs will be selecting classics which have all made a significant contribution to modern cinema and are well worth bringing back to the big screen. The club is for anyone who loves film and wants to see something a bit different. You will be able to take your drinks into the auditorium and there will be an interval.

The Blue Angel By Josef von Sternberg (1930)will always have a place in film history as the movie that brought Marlene Dietrich to international stardom. Based on Heinrich Mann’s novel Professor Unrat, this tragicomedy depicts the metamorphosis of a respectable professor (Emil Jannings), to a cabaret clown, into madness.  Made at the birth of the sound era, The Blue Angel is the first major sound film from Germany and is an intriguing glimpse at the backstage life of shabby German postwar vaudeville.
