Art Deco Illustrated Presentations 2014

"Theodore Kosloff & Cecil B. DeMille Meet Madam Satan" / MADAM SATAN

Saturday, March 15 - 2:00PM Egyptian Theater

Dance critic Debra Levine brings new insight to Art Deco favorite MADAM SATAN (MGM, 1930, dir. Cecil B. DeMille), zeroing in on the early talkie’s bizarre and exceptional “ballet mécanique” that takes place in a zeppelin. Levine has researched the director’s 40-year friendship with Theodore Kosloff, a Ballets Russes dancer who acted in more than thirty silent movies, most directed by DeMille. DeMille’s consultations with Kosloff concerning MADAM SATAN, on the cusp of the Depression, resulted in the dancer’s appearance as “The Spirit of Electricity.” Levine will share the back story of the development of MADAM SATAN's inimitable movie-musical sequence. Following is a screening of MADAM SATAN. Part of Hollywood Heritage’s Centennial Celebration of the Lasky-DeMille partnership.

Illustrated presentation by dance critic Debra Levine. Actress Mary Carlisle to appear in person at the event.

The presentation will last approximately 60 minutes with a question and answer period. MADAM SATAN will start at approximately 3:10 PM following a short break after the lecture. Screening format: 35mm.

Co-presented by the American Cinematheque and the Art Deco Society of Los Angeles with support from the Cecil B. DeMille Foundation.
