BATTLESHIP POTEMKIN. Most of us had to see this in class but did you know that the film you saw wasn't what Eisenstein intended? Decades of tinkering resulted in a chopped-up film played at the wrong speed. Well, thanks to some virtuoso restoration, we now have a chance to see this brilliant film as it was originally meant to be. If you think you don't like POTEMKIN, give this edition a try.

MARY PICKFORD: THE WOMAN WHO MADE HOLLYWOOD. Mary Pickford's importance cannot be underestimated and this excellent biography gives her her due. Before American women had the right to vote or own their own businesses, Pickford was negotiating contracts and displaying a head for business that had studio moguls shaking in their boots. Truly a pioneer.
