Introduced by Tom Kalin! 35mm print

Featuring Bette Davis, Joan Blondell, and a blazingly memorable performance by Ann Dvorak as the doomed, sybaritic heroine, THREE ON A MATCH perfectly embodies the forbidden pleasures of Pre-Code Hollywood that seduced our presenter, New Queer Cinema pioneer Tom Kalin (Swoon, Savage Grace). “At an impressionable age, I stumbled upon the mirror-world of Pre-Code films on late night television,” Kalin says, “these movies dared to show marital discord with pleasure-seeking female protagonists who flaunted convention.” Preceded by the remarkably dream-like Bubbles (featuring the young Judy Garland). Join us for a special evening of deep drama and sinuous sensuality!
