St. Louis’ Rats & People Motion Picture Orchestra returns to SLIFF with an original score and live accompaniment for “The Half Breed,” a newly restored silent featuring Hollywood legend Douglas Fairbanks. In an attempt to brand himself as a serious actor, the smiling swashbuckler Fairbanks starred in this Western melodrama written by Anita Loos and directed with flair by Allan Dwan. Fairbanks stars as Lo Dorman, who has been ostracized from society because of his mixed ethnicity — his Native American mother was abandoned by his white father.

SLIFF offers a film-and-music combo with a screening of “Blue Note Records: Beyond the Notes” and a jazz performance by St. Louis’ Adam Maness Trio. The documentary explores the vision behind the iconic American jazz label. Since 1939, Blue Note artists have been encouraged to push creative boundaries in search of uncompromising expressions. Through current recording sessions, rare archival footage, and conversations with iconic Blue Note artists, the film reveals an intimate perspective of a legacy that continues to be vital in today’s political climate.
