With live music by Donald Sosin

Dir. Howard Hawks. 1929, approx. 50 mins. Incomplete 35mm print from The Library of Congress. With Donald Crisp, Raymond Griffith. In Hawks’s last silent film, a witty and unconventional whodunit, a leading financier commits suicide, disguises it as a murder framing his worst enemy as the culprit, and invites the great detective Trent on the scene before the crime!
