Check out that 'flirty blonde salesgirl' (and Pickford, too)!

Yes, that's Carole Lombard -- all of 18 at the time -- playing a "flirty blonde salesgirl" opposite Charles "Buddy" Rogers in the 1927 silent comedy "My Best Girl," one of Mary Pickford's best movies (http://carole-and-co.livejournal.com/33953.html). And if you're in the Bay Area next month, you'll have a chance to see it as it should be seen...on a big screen in a theater, alongside other film fans.

"My Best Girl" will be shown at 7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 16 at the fabled Castro Theatre in San Francisco, co-sponsored by the Berkeley Art Museum & Pacific Film Archive (BAM/PFA) and 42nd Street Moon.

Author Jeffrey Vance tells of how he sat next to Rogers during a showing of "My Best Girl" and noted, "he would chime in with some wonderful comments. Yes, this moment had him saying 'That's Carole Lombard!' [It's something many people who have seen the film don't realize, as she was unbilled.] During the famous packing crate love scene, he shouted proudly, 'The first time I kissed Mary!' and the whole audience burst into applause."

It wouldn't be the last time, either; Rogers married Pickford in 1937, a union that lasted until her death in 1979.

"My Best Girl" is part of a day-long program at the Castro. There's a silent, live-action "Snow White" from 1916 at 10 a.m.; an array of Buster Keaton shorts at noon; the 1924 "The Thief Of Bagdad," the masterpiece swashbuckler starring Pickford's earlier husband Douglas Fairbanks Sr., at 2:30 p.m.; and director F.W. Murnau's 1926 "Faust" at 9. Tickets for each performance are $15, though you can also get a day pass for $70 (or $50 if you're a member of the San Francisco Silent Film Festival).

As for Rogers and Lombard, they would meet again on screen in the spring of 1930 in what would be Carole's Paramount debut, "Safety In Numbers."
