Two Films by Lois Weber (Sensation Seekers / A Chapter in Her Life)
Among the most exciting rediscoveries of silent cinema are the films of Lois Weber, who produced and directed a series of popular and provocative films at Universal Studios, often depicting women's struggles for independence within the ever-shifting moral landscape of 1920s modernity.
Sensation Seekers stars Billie Dove (The Black Pirate) as the free-spirited Egypt, a small-town girl who dreams of escape and adventure, and resists the efforts of a pious minister (Raymond Bloomer) to tame her thirst for excitement. Egypt's progress is highlighted by moments of cinematic spectacle, including a lavish masquerade ball and a stunning shipwreck sequence.
A Chapter in Her Life explores the efforts of a young girl (Jane Mercer) whose childish innocence exposes the hypocrisy and weakness that threaten the happiness of an aristocratic family.
