Live Musical Accompaniment From Gerhard Gruber!
CAFE ELECTRIC
Live piano music by renowned Austrian silent film accompaniest Gerhard Gruber.
CAFE ELECTRIC
1927, Sud-Film, 91 min, Germany, Dir: Gustav Ucicky

Wealthy party girl Erni (Marlene Dietrich) and purse snatcher Ferdi (Willi Forst) meet one night at the infamous Café Electric, a local haunt for the lower depths of society. Erni is more smitten than the duplicitous Ferdi, and agrees to help him pay off his sizable gambling debt - by stealing from her successful contractor father. This early Dietrich gem is not to be missed!


Screening format: DVD | Gerhard Gruber also will be performing at the Los Angeles Jewish Film Festival on May 6 - check lajfilmfest.org for info.
