At Dowling: Tillie’s Punctured Romance and Alexander Nevsky

Friday, May 9, 1969

The Cinmea Festival finished out their year of activity in style with a whiplash-inducing double feature in the Hunt Room: Alexander Nevsky and Tillie’s Punctured Romance.

Nevsky is a historical drama from Russian director Sergei Eisenstein. Originally released in 1938, it chronicles the battle of a Russian prince against invading Teutonic Knights in the 13th century.

Tillie’s is an early silent comedy from Mack Sennett  dating to 1914. It features both Charlie Chaplin and the Keystone Kops in a story about a city slicker (Chaplin) seeking to separate a country girl from her inheritance.
