Despite all the sunshine, or maybe because of it, Los Angeles tends to be a hidden city, a place whose great treasures are not always the obvious ones. So it is that the city's most surprising, most stimulating, most invigorating film event is not the Oscars, not even one of L.A.'s sprightly film festivals, but the UCLA Film and Television Archive's splendid and irreplaceable Festival of Preservation.

DeMille produced a lavish, silent version of the ribald comedy about a flapper named Roxie Hart who kills her boyfriend and is then incarcerated on the infamous "murderess row." Reported lost for many years, the 1928 production was actually in the DeMille family collection, and the UCLA Film and Television Archive recently restored "Chicago" from DeMille's personal 35-millimeter nitrate print.
