Intro and Outro: Guest Programmer Bruce Goldstein

Lee Tracy, who practically invented the Pre-Code Era acting style, stars as a high-octane, stop-at-nothing gossip columnist. This rare print of Blessed Event is the most-complete version ever screened.

• “No other movie came even close to displaying Lee Tracy’s abundant energy and rat-a-tat-tat style; he was as great a star of the era as Jimmy Cagney or Edward G. Robinson.” —Bruce Goldstein

• Find out more about the film from New York’s Film Forum.
