Return to Babylon
With Director Alex Monty Canawati in attendance for a Q&A!
Director Alex Monty Canawati's fast-paced, sexy and often bitingly funny look at 1920's Hollywood and the scandals that rocked the silent-movie era. Hand-cranked and scored by piano true to form, Maria Conchita Alonso, Jennifer Tilly, Debi Mazar, Ione Skye and Tippi Hedren light up the screen in this saucy silent film. "Return to Babylon" is an episodic film, stringing together the lives of scandalous Clara Bow (Jennifer Tilly), fiery Mexican film star Lupe Velez (Maria Conchita Alonso) and husband Johnny "Tarzan" Weissmuller, ill-fated Virginia Rappe (Ione Skye) and Fatty Arbuckle, Gloria Swanson (Debi Mazar), Ramon Navarro (Phillip Bloch), Josephine Baker (Rolonda Watts), Rudolph Valentino (Alex Monty Canawati) and a host of others.
