La Mujer Sin Alma
Dir. Fernando de Fuentes (1943)
Fernando Soler and María Félix star in this adaptation of 19th-century French novelist Alphonse Duder's story, which translates as "The Woman Without a Soul." The film screens at 4 p.m. Sunday, June 19, at the Instituto de México, 600 Hemisfair Park. Admission is free.
Movies on the Slab
Mark of Zorro
Dir. Fred Niblo (1920)
Douglas Fairbanks makes his mark as the nobleman whose limp wrist by day shields him from the suspicion of the corrupt colonial government of Spanish California he fights by night. The tale owes much to The Scarlet Pimpernel, but the film became a new-world classic in its own right. Mark of Zorro screens at dusk Thursday, June 16, at the Slab at Probandt and Cevallos, across from La Tuna Icehouse. Admission is free. For more info, visit saevents.org/movies/index.htm.
