Brand new restored print of "Berkeley Square" to play at San Pedro HPLFF
The 2011 H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival® in San Pedro will be the first to screen a newly restored 35mm print of "Berkeley Square" from 1933. Print courtesy of the Academy Film Archive.
Lovecraft liked the movie, and it inspired him to write "The Shadow Out of Time". The grandchildren of director Frank Lloyd will introduce and share their memorabilia of the picture, which was Lloyd's favorite. He also directed "Mutiny on the Bounty" with Clark Gable (Best Picture).
This movie was considered by many to be lost, except for a poor-quality bootleg that has been making the rounds of the internet. This will be the first time this print has been screened, and probably the first time the movie has shown anywhere in decades.
The HPLFF is proud to show a 1933 movie in a 1931 theater that was so inspiring to Lovecraft. Perhaps it will be inspiring to you?
