Destiny (1921) Poster

Starring Lil Dagover, Walter Janssen and Bernhard Goetzke, this dark fairy tale tells the story of a young woman’s bargain with the Angel of Death after he slays her lover. Death agrees to revive him if she can save at least one of three lives in peril in three different settings: medieval Persia, Renaissance Venice, and imperial China. The film influenced a succeeding generation of filmmakers, including Luis Buñuel, who said in his autobiography, “When I saw DESTINY, I suddenly knew that I wanted to make movies,” and Alfred Hitchcock, who cited it as a film that deeply impressed him as a young man.

    an old,classic film there was still relevance.Glad I went.

    Page Hall is very easy to find. It's on 135 Western AVenue Albany on the SUNY downtown campus. There's free parking right next to the hall. It's about a block from where South Lake crosses Western. The movie is a classic silent film, backed up by a live piano player. I've seen it before, and I will see again tomorrow.

    this looks good. I haven't been to this venue - let's hope it is easy to find...
