Lonesome

Dryden Theatre

A Preservation Legacy: Ed Stratmann It’s the classic story of boy-meets-girl, both lonely but not alone, cyphers lost among the bustle of the big city until at last fate brings them together. The history of this film is a quintessential George Eastman Museum story. The original nitrate print was repatriated to the US in a trade James Card made with Henri Langlois at the Cinémathèque Française. The title has gone through no fewer than three preservations as technologies became available to restore the film to its original visual and auditory brilliance—and restore the title to its place among the greats of the late silent era.
