WARREN WILLIAM DOUBLE FEATURE #1: Born Warren William Krech on December 2, 1894, the actor made his Broadway debut in 1923 and then rose to stardom in snappy, risqué pre-Code talkies. Although he typically played amoral, aggressive businessmen and lawyers, in real life he was shy and retiring, and an avid inventor whose patents included the lawn vacuum. Despite his screen persona as a calloused seducer, he remained married to his wife Helen for twenty-five years, until his death on September 24, 1948. Today we present Michael Curtiz’s The Woman from Monte Carlo (1931-70 min.), which co-stars Lil Dagover and Walter Huston, and, after a brief intermission, Roy Del Ruth’s Upperworld (1934-73 min.), co-starring Ginger Rogers and Mary Astor. Look for another Warren William double bill on December 29. 2 p.m.
