You can hear me talking about Hollywood legend Anna May Wong this Sunday on the BBC World Service's The Forum at 9am. Chaired by Bridget Kendall, I'm on with Professor Dimitar Sasselov, discussing Super-earths, and Kwame Anthony Appiah on honour revolutions.
Bob From Brockley tells me there's a chance to see Anna May Wong on the big(gish) screen in Nunhead next month with a showing of Piccadilly (1929), her last silent movie which some have said is her best film ever.
Don't miss out on this night.
1920s Soho is coming to Nunhead!
A classic silent film with live music score
4th December, 8pm
This classic silent film will be screened with live musical score for one night only at the Ivy House pub in Nunhead. Seated in the style of a 1920s club you will be able to enjoy period cocktails from the bar.
Described by Martin Scorsese as “one of the truly great films of the silent era”, Piccadilly will be accompanied by an evocative improvised score performed by acclaimed Russian accordionist Igor Outkine.
