Evil Woman

Long before Julia Roberts sank her horse-teeth into the role and Charlize Theron took her turn, actress Helen Gahagan in the 1935 film She served as the inspiration for the Evil Queen in Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Holly Woodlawn makes a rare appearance to host this screening of the original version (Bond girl Ursula Andress appeared in a 1965 incarnation), produced by King Kong's Merian C. Cooper and based on H. Rider Haggard's series of fantasy novels. The movie follows a trio of adventure seekers — led by '30s Western actor Randolph Scott — who search for the Fountain of Youth in the Arctic and find an ancient civilization ruled by vengeful, immortal Queen Hash-a-Mo-Tep, aka She Who Must Be Obeyed, who thinks Scott is the reincarnation of her long-lost lover. For a 500-year-old who bathes in fire, She had a rockin' body. Add cannibals and bizarre, Martha Graham–style choreography, and you have 90 minutes of campy fun. And who knows more about camp than real-life queen of drag and Andy Warhol film star Woodlawn? Cinefamily, 611 N. Fairfax Ave.; Fri., June 29, 8 p.m.; $12. (323) 655-2510, cinefamily.org.
