Jane Shore is a British historical epic based on the life of the mistress of Edward IV, who described her as ‘the merriest, the wiliest, and the holiest harlots’ in his realm.
Produced by Ealing Studios in 1915, it rivalled the best productions coming out of Hollywood at the time.
The film is being brought to Cambridge Arts Picturehouse on 15 April, 6.30pm, as part of a small UK tour. Music will be provided by composer Laura Rossi, with her ensemble, Orchestra Celeste.
Classic Cinema Club, Ealing, commented: “We are excited about reviving this BFI classic Ealing film, described as the British answer to ‘Birth of a Nation’, for its centenary. The BFI has made a stunning new print of the tinted version which was recently discovered in their archives and hasn’t been seen for 100 years. It’s a rare chance to see this early classic on the big screen.”
