      The rarely seen 1928 Louise Brooks film, "Beggars of Life," will be
      shown at the Castro Theater in San Francisco on Saturday, July 14. In
      it, Brooks plays a farm girl who dresses as a boy and goes on the run
      after murdering her abusive step-father.

      This special screening is part of the annual San Francisco Silent Film
      Festival. For more info on the festival see http://www.silentfilm.org
      or http://www.sanfranciscosentinel.com/?p=2800

      This screening marks the West Coast premiere of a new 35mm print of
      "Beggars of Life." Additionally, the son of the film's director -
      William Wellman, will be on hand to introduce the movie. If you love
      Louise Brooks, don't miss it!
