About This Event
On Saturday at 2:30 p.m., the Gallery presents His People preceded by Amarilly of Clothesline Alley, with tenor Douglas Bowles and Dennis James on piano. In His People, shot on Manhattan's Lower East Side, the sons of a Russian immigrant pushcart peddler are causing huge problems for the family. Amarilly of Clothesline Alley stars Mary Pickford as a down-to-earth Irish cigarette girl in love with the bartender at the Cyclone Café…until she gets a taste of the uptown life.
