(Raoul Walsh) George Raft and rival fire chief Wallace Beery let Chinatown burn as they vie for the love of “skoit” Fay Wray, while no ethnic group is spared by bowery boy Jackie Cooper, in rowdy celebration of Gay 90s low life. Approx. 92 min. 35mm.

“One of Walsh’s most personal films of the early sound period, with definite signs of the stunning deep-focus technique that was to coalesce later in the decade... And it definitely has the Walsh spirit in abundance: its tall tale of rival saloon owners… is broad, rowdy, and a little bit raunchy.”
– Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
(Raoul Walsh) Sally Eilers promises to wait for sailor James Dunn when shoreside leave romance blossoms, but he gets sore when she goes for the gold at a dance marathon run by lecherous Victor Jory. Plus Betty Boop introduces POPEYE THE SAILOR in his movie debut! Approx. 64 min. 35mm.

“This rollicking Fox comedy opens with a naval gunboat firing at the camera, which is probably as good an image as any to sum up the cinema of Raoul Walsh.”
– J.R. Jones, Chicago Reader
