barbed wire lobby card AJoin us for a very special screening of “Barbed Wire” (1927) with live accompaniment from Jeff Rapsis.  'Barbed Wire' is a Paramount drama starring Pola Negri and Clive Brook set in France as World War I breaks out.  As hostilities deepen, the French government commandeers a family farm for use as a camp for German POWs, causing tension in the community.  But things heat up when a local farm girl (Pola Negri) falls in love with an imprisoned German. Can their bond survive the War, and the intense hostility that surrounds them?

Directed by Rowland V. Lee, 'Barbed Wire' is an intense drama about forbidden love and the human condition. It's also one of the rare silent films with an extended sequence Christmas sequence, which in this case is celebrated in a prison camp.
 

 Cost is $5 for MHA Members, $7 for general guests and includes refreshments.

As part of the MHA's Holiday Open House, John Clayton will present an interactive, audience-participation discussion around his popular book, “You Know You’re in New Hampshire When...”
The book is a compendium of 101 quintessential people, places, events and traditions that answers the question “What do you think about when you think about New Hampshire?”
Clayton puts that same question to his listeners and the resultant give-and-take will remind you of all there is to love about the Granite State.
John Clayton is the executive director of the Manchester Historic Association and Millyard Museum. He previously spent 25 years as a reporter and columnist for the New Hampshire Union Leader, where his “In the City” column was a fixture on the front page. He is the author of seven books about Manchester and New Hampshire.
