Dancing great Bill Williamson sees his face on the cover of Theatre World magazine and reminisces: Just back from World War I, he meets lovely singer Selina Rogers at a soldiers’ ball and promises to come back to her when he “gets to be somebody.” Years go by, and Bill and Selina’s rising careers intersect only briefly, since Selina is unwilling to settle down. Will she ever change her mind? Concludes with a big all-star show hosted by Cab Calloway.

Shaun Clarke, Associate Professor at Emerson College, will lead the discussion.

We’re excited to bring back our “Elements of Cinema” free screening series for regular monthly shows in 2023! Each screening is accompanied by an extended introduction by a special guest speaker on a selected topic from film history as well as a post-film conversation with the audience (schedule permitting).
