Stella Dallas (1925) restoration selected as the pre-opening film to this year’s Venice Film Festival!

Stella Dallas will screen in Venice on Tuesday, August 30, 2022.

“[…] With its screenplay by Frances Marion, Hollywood’s leading female screenwriter, the film is particularly sensitive to the emotional violence of slights, snubs and omissions, as King builds the drama toward one of the most visually and emotionally impactful climaxes of any melodrama. As the critic of Moving Picture World wrote in 1925, “There are few so blasé that they won’t feel a tug of the heart, a lump in the throat and moist eyelids while viewing Stella Dallas.”
