May's Night Out at the Cinema!

It's that time again, for our monthly movie night!

Dinner together on this cool spring night is spent discussing our plans for summer adventures, what books we're reading, and other fun things. Then we go down the street to that old movie house where they all know us so well...

First up, I'm doing something a bit different and putting up this very funny clip from the 1929 musical revue film "The Show of Shows," with four comedians (Frank Fay, Lloyd Hamilton, Louise Fazenda, and Beatrice Lillie) doing recitations that end up being somewhat ribald. It's good pre-code naughtiness, and a chance to see Beatrice Lillie in action; she made few film appearances.

And then up next is this piece of fun, 1932's "The Death Kiss," starring David Manners and Bela Lugosi!

The show over, we wander on down the street for a parting glass at our favorite cafe...
