The Cherry's Back-Story series (subtitled Reel People at the Cherry) brings together seminal films and authoritative guest speakers for an in-depth examination of keystone works. Last time it was Stalag 17; this time King Vidor's 1928 silent film The Crowd gets the royal treatment. The story of John and Mary Sims, an ordinary couple struggling in the metropolis of New York, is the story of the individual's place in crowded, urban landscapes. Vidor's experimental film did not go over with the studio or audiences, but history has vindicated his vision: His daughter, Belinda Vidor Holliday, comes to the Cherry to explain why at this screening. Reservations recommended. [WR]
