The Guilty Generation at Leo Carrillo

by The Editors on August 30, 2007


On Friday evening August 31 the Leo Carrillo Ranch Friday Night Film Festival will present the 1931 film Guilty Generation which follows 1930’s era gangsters in a premise based William Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet. In this film, Leo Carrillo plays Mike Palmiero.

John Smith is a young architect who changed his name from Marco Ricca when he realized that being a notorious bootlegger’s son was not likely to help his career. Maria Palmiero’s father is also a bootlegger, and she’s finding that the high society circles she wants to move in are not very welcoming to her. Naturally, John and Maria’s fathers are waging a brutal gang war back in New York, and naturally John and Maria fall in love.

Bring a low back chair, warm clothes, a flashlight, and a blanket. The movie starts promptly at sunset with a showing of the Cisco Kid before the main feature. Admission is free and hot dogs, chips, popcorn, cotton candy, and sodas can be purchased at the Barn Theater.

The next two Fridays will feature the following films: If You Could Only Cook, and I Promise to Pay.
