Beggars of Life (Blu-ray)
Directed by William Wellman
Writers Jim Tully and Benjamin Glazer
NEW RESTORATION! An American silent film classic, Beggars of Life stars Louise Brooks as a train-hopping hobo who dresses like a boy to survive.
After escaping her violent stepfather, Nancy (Brooks) befriends kindly drifter Jim (Richard Arlen), and they ride the rails until an encounter with a rowdy band of hoboes led by the blustery Oklahoma Red (Wallace Beery) leads to a daring, desperate conflict on top of a moving train. Based on the memoir of real-life hobo Jim Tully, and directed with adventuresome verve by William Wellman, Beggars of Life is an essential American original. Features a new original score by the Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra.
Blu-ray Extras Include:
Digitally restored from 35mm film elements preserved by the George Eastman Museum
Audio commentary by actor William Wellman, Jr.
Audio commentary by Thomas Gladysz, founding director of the Louise Brooks Society
Booklet essay by film critic Nick Pinkerton
Musical score compiled and performed by The Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra, employing selections from the original 1928 Paramount cue-sheet
"Exciting and brilliantly parsed action scenes." - Richard Brody, The New Yorker
