This new restoration of Beggars of Life, a 1928 drama starring Louise Brooks, Richard Arlen and Wallace Beery and directed by William Wellman, has been making the festival rounds but this is you chance to own it. I’ll be going through the contents of this disc and showcasing what it has to offer.
While she made more films in Hollywood, Louise Brooks’ reputation rests on the work she did with director G.W. Pabst in Germany near the end of the silent era. Now one of her most famous films is being released on Blu-ray and we’re going to take a sneak peek. As usual, thanks to Kino Lorber for the advance review copy.
