NEW YORK -- Sometimes I feel like I was born in the wrong era. Oh to have been around -- in Paris, in New York, even in San Francisco -- to absorb the art, cinema, theater, dance and music being produced in the 20 years preceding and two decades following World War II. While the dance, particularly at New York City Ballet and the Martha Graham Dance Company, has not always been so carefully preserved, fortunately there still exist in New York enclaves where you can experience some of the art that emerged in this epoch. In the last week alone I've seen rare art by the American originals Stuart Davis and Romare Bearden (at DC Moore) and Raoul Walsh's rarely screened re-casting of his 1941 classic Humphrey Bogart gangster pic "High Sierra" as a 1949 Joel McCrea Western, "Colorado Territory," both being shown as part of Anthology Film Archives' Auto-Remake series.
