Crossdressing and gender-bending had a place even in silent war films from the 1910s and ‘20s.
Join us for this double feature and the grand finale of our WWI film series curated and introduced by Wolfsonian Chief Librarian Frank Luca.
Yankee Doodle in Berlin is the story of an army captain who disguises himself as a woman in order to fool the German High Command; while She Goes to War follows the tale of a curious young woman who dresses as a man and follows her fiancé into the trenches.
