Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque, Peter B. Lewis Theater, 11610 Euclid Ave.
Event is in the past.
Directed by John Murray Anderson. With Paul Whiteman and His Orchestra, Bing Crosby, et al. Paul Whiteman, a hugely popular bandleader of the 1920s who was dubbed “King of Jazz” by the Caucasian media, is the ringmaster of this entertainment extravaganza boasting comedy sketches, novelty acts, an animated cartoon, a performance of Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue (commissioned by Whiteman), and much more. This classic revue film was shot in an early two-strip Technicolor process, and has been beautifully restored. (USA, 1930, color, DCP, 100 min.)
Co-presented by the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque and shown in the Peter B. Lewis Theater, 11610 Euclid Ave.
