With all due respect to the estimable Mr. Kehr and his at-least-two-decades-old review... this is a masterpiece, thrilling and touching, with one of the best performances of the silent era by Richard Barthelmess as the child-man David, as well as one of the most memorably badassed action climaxes of the time. Do not miss it.

"For unknown reasons the house requires you to order two at time at market price"
Isn't that pretty much true everywhere? Or many places, anyway, which always makes me wonder why they don't just make that one order for double the price, since you have to order it and they have to explain, every time, that no, you can't have just one.
It's like the hamburger place in my home town that had two sizes of fries-- Half Order and Quarter Order. Huh?
It's Rauner's Springfield like it was Joey Bishop's Rat Pack.
Cranston's Trumbo was so hilariously overacted I'm surprised he didn't win the Oscar, or at least immediately get cast in The Paul Lynde Story.
Ah, fond memories of The Illegitimate Players:

"I don't own a car, so having a parking lot instead of something else is utterly stupid. Second that place is so south that i don't think many people would go there just to visit a park, when we have parks and jungles up north which arw more far safer down there."
Do you have a bike? The south lakefront is great to bike, and quite safe in my experience.
