Women and Cocaine presents The Thirteenth Guest (1932) – SORRY EVENT CANCELLED

Sat 17 Feb 2024 @ 19:30 · Events

The Thirteenth Guest Known as Lady Beware in the UK, Ginger Rogers dazzles in one of her early film roles.

The Thirteenth Guest Based on a book by crime fiction author Armitage Trail (who also wrote Scarface), The Thirteenth Guest follows Marie Morgan (Ginger Rogers) who has been lured to an old abandoned house by a false note from a friend, and is in jeopardy although she doesn’t yet realize it. Thirteen years ago there was a dinner party, to which the 13th guest failed to arrive.

Now the master of the manor has died and left the bulk of his estate to this 13th guest, but nobody knows who this person might be, and somebody is murdering the remaining guests and placing their dead bodies at the table, each in the same seat he or she occupied at that other party 13 years ago.

The film will be preceded by a short introduction and followed by a raffle!
