Sometimes it is worth it to stop and enjoy something on your journey, rather than to always be in perpetual motion. This past Saturday we got to do both. Denver locals Josie Quick and Tom Carleno brought Perpetual Motion to Fresh City Life.
Right off, I'll tell you that, if you missed this wonderful concert, we will be bringing Perpetual Motion back for an encore in the new year. They are fantastic!
This sought-after duo blends acoustic world music into a bright fusion of sounds. Mixing international styles, Perpetual Motion moves effortlessly between the traditions of Central and South American folk, progressive jazz, blues and rock. This eclectic approach to music informs their original compositions and cover tunes.
Crawford puts down the wire hanger and picks up her six shooters in the Western film that has become a cult and auteur classic.
Toward the end of her life, Joan Crawford was asked to comment on the 1954 film Johnny Guitar. She answered that she thought she was wrong for the part and she wished she hadn't made the film. I'm glad she did -- and so are a lot of fans of Crawford and the Western genre.

Tonight is our ongoing celebration for the Denver Public Library's Film Series 10th Anniversary. In the second installment of our Westward the Women collection, we'll be showing Destry Rides Again, a film that marked Marlene Dietrich's Triumpahnt return to the screen after several near career-ending films. The series continues for two more weeks: next films up are The Harvey Girls and Johnny Guitar (with Joan Crawford as the head cowgirl!) Showtime 6p in the B2 Conference Center.
Marlene Dietrich made her Hollywood comeback in the film Destry Rides Again starring opposite Jimmy Stewart. And Dietrich rides again this Tuesday at our 10th Anniversary Film Series.
I mentioned to a friend this weekend that Marlene Dietrich's starring role in the popular film Destry Rides Again was a comeback performance for her. My friend asked how Dietrich could have a comeback when her career was strong and steady all the way through. Which is how most movie fans think of Dietrich.
