(USA/1928) Directed by Josef von Sternberg

Following triumphant premiere performances at this fall’s Telluride and New York Film Festivals, The Alloy Orchestra will perform their all-new score for director Josef von Sternberg’s brilliant, rarely-seen 1928 drama The Last Command, about a former Imperial Russian General whose life takes several astounding turns, eventually culminating in his being cast in a Hollywood movie in which he plays – what else? – a Russian general. The great Emil Jannings (The Last Laugh) won the Academy Award for this performance, which once again springs to vivid life thanks to this sparkling new 35mm restoration, as well as to the vibrant score performed live by The Alloy Orchestra. (88 min.)
