The Power and the Glory w/ Colleen Moore Tribute

  •   William K. Howard
  •   United States     1933
  •   Masters


Colleen Moore (1899-1988) was not only one of the great comediennes of the silent screen era, but also co-founder of the Chicago International Film Festival. Known for her bobbed haircut, she starred in dozens of films from the teens into the 1930s. We will be presenting clips from her early classics leading up to one of her rare sound films, The Power and the Glory. Join her grandson Billy Hargrave in conversation with Michael Kutza for this celebration of a Chicago legend and an early cinema icon.


This 1933 pre-code classic written by Preston Sturges stars Spencer Tracy as railroad tycoon Tom Garner, and Colleen Moore, co-founder of the Chicago International Film Festival, as the wife who pushed his ambitions. After Garner commits suicide, his friend Henry (Ralph Morgan) reflects on the experiences that shaped the industrialist, a man whose great drive took a private toll. With a Tribute to Colleen Moore featuring special guest Billy Hargrave, Moore’s grandson.
