Monday Movie Silent Cinema: Madame Butterfly (1915)

February 11 @ 6:30 pm

$4 - $6.50

1h 1min | Drama | 7 November 1915 (USA)

Mary Pickford stars as a doomed geisha in the first filmed version of John Luther Long’s famous novel. On a stopover in Japan, Lieutenant B.F. Pinkerton meets the teenage Choo-Choo-San, known to her patrons as ‘Madame Butterfly’. To pass the time, the arrogant sailor forces the young girl to marry him. Though Choo-Choo-San really loves the handsome seaman, he has no intention of actually staying in the Far East. Pinkerton departs Japan, leaving his now-pregnant wife behind. Finding herself shunned by family and friends, Choo-Choo-San tries to raise her young son alone, all the while desperately awaiting her husband’s return. When Pinkerton arrives in Japan with a new wife, the stage is set for tragedy.
