Movies: Pandora's Box (1929)

Pandora's Box (1929)
Black and white silent flick - pretty much watch one gal's self-destruction unfold. Notable because it has some superb silent acting and a story that stays strong from start to finish. It involves controversial topics like lesbianism (in 1929!) and a son running off with his stepmom to escape the law. Honest - these crazy dressings on the story make sense when it all unfolds.
This is a silent-black-and-white appreciation-crowd type movie.
