Description:

With the only filmed performance by Bessie Smith, this 20-minute short - a standard he-done-her-wrong melodrama - is lifted to the level of the operatic by Smith's electrifying presence. The program includes other short musical films featuring Louis Armstrong, Fats Waller and Cab Calloway. After the films, museum director Kevin Grogan leads a discussion. Participants are encouraged to bring a bag lunch.
