Many homes in Jamaica Plain date back to the turn of the century, and various newer techniques exist to help one figure out who lived there over the years. Land records and a few databases can help give you the names and other interesting pieces of information, and histories and older genealogies can help show who farmed the land we now live in for even the last four hundred years.

The People’s Cinema welcomes you to the Loring-Greenough on November 16th, 7pm, for some classic French cinema: The Crime of Monsieur Lange (1936) by Jean Renoir — director of The Rules of the Game.
While recognized today as one of the finest works in the career of renowned French director Jean Renoir, The Crime of Monsieur Lange has been little seen in recent years and is not widely available on DVD. Based on a script by Jacques Prevert (who would later write Children of Paradise) the film tells the story of Monsieur Lange (Réné Lefèvre) who works in the publishing house run by the swinish, fast-talking Batala (Jules Berry), grinding out western adventure novels. When Batala fakes his own death in order to skip town and escape his creditors, his publishing house becomes a humming, happy, perfectly run collective. (John Gianvito)
