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.
