7th Heaven (1927)

This adaptation of Austin Strong's 1922 play begins, literally, in Paris' lower depths as a sewer-worker, Chico (Charles Farrell), saves Diane (Janet Gaynor) from being beaten by her sister.  To protect and help her heal, Chico takes Diane up to his 7th floor attic-apartment where, away from the world, love grows and empowers them, until World War I separates them, in a romantic-drama about love as a spiritual and transformative force.  Directed by Frank Borzage.
(1927)  118 Minutes  USA 

With live piano accompaniment by Bernie Anderson. Hosted & Curated by Ken Gordon.  Children under the age of six will not be admitted to these programs.
