Yes, Pandora's Box
is where she meets Jack. One of the unfortunate things about the print shown was that the opening credits listed Gustav Diessl as playing "Jack the Ripper" instead of just "Jack" as other prints do. (Kinda gives things away even before the film starts.) The credits also provided a description of each character, calling Schigolch someone who "Pretends to be Lulu's father," when one of the fascinating things about the film is that his character is never clearly defined.

I'd love to see more classics on the big screen, so when shown locally, I'm generally there, supporting them. For Pandora's Box
, however, I mentioned to my wife that it was playing up in Chicago, never thinking that she would say ' so let's go'. I'm sure all the folks on this forum wouldn't hesitate to drive three hours to see a favorite film on the big screen, so when my wife suggested we go, I got out my keys. (The drive was indeed three hours. Unfortunately, added to that three hours was--and I'm not exaggerating-- an additional hour and a half sitting in traffic mere blocks from the theater. It was so bad that the nice British Lady voicing the GPS got tired of saying "Do make a right turn in point two miles" and instead sang her own rendition of Carole King's "It's too Late, Baby
." Anticipating traffic, I'd given us four hours to do the journey. Thank goodness for the Central Time Zone change, which gave us an additional hour. We made the curtain with minutes to spare. Oh, and I lost three pounds).
