From Hollywood’s golden age, Lonesome tells the story of a factory worker and a switchboard operator who fall in love then lose each otherduring the Fourth of July weekend in New York City. Director Paul Fejös energetically uses a host of cinematic devices including color tinting, superimposition effects, experimental editing, and a roving camera (plus three dialogue scenes, added to satisfy the new craze for talkies) to evoke a hot summer in a crowded city. Starring Barbara Kent, Glenn Tryon, Fay Holderness, and Andy Devine. The Warhol Museum continues its partnership with the world-renowned photograph and motion picture archives, George Eastman House, to bring rarely shown silent and early sound masterpieces from its extensive collection exclusively to Pittsburgh.
