Tribute to King Baggot 

The George Clooney of 100 years ago was St. Louis native King Baggot. Baggot was a huge star in the early days of the silent era who transitioned to the director's chair in later years. Both parts of his career are honored at the King Baggot Tribute at this year's St. Louis International Film Festival. The actor Baggot is celebrated with a tinted 35mm print of his starring turn in Ivanhoe (1913) with live score by Rats & People Motion Picture Orchestra, followed by his directorial masterpiece Tumbleweeds, with music by Matt Pace. Tumbleweeds dazzled audiences with its depiction of the 1889 Cherokee Land Rush, recreated with hundreds of wagons and riders streaking across the screen. Film buff Thomas Stockman discusses Baggot's life and work between the two films.
