Ebert on Ragtime

We will screen the film Ragtime tomorrow 2/7 in anticipation of a visit by E. L. Doctorow, major American novelist, on Thursday, 2/27.

More about the film series:

Roger Ebert reviewed Ragtime in 1981:

"Ragtime is a loving, beautifully mounted, graceful film that creates its characters with great clarity. We understand where everyone stands, and most of the time we even know why."


Picture:  James Cagney in his final movie performance as New York Police Commissioner Rhinelander Waldo.
