A Full Program Disc
Have you ever wondered how it must have felt to spend an evening at the movies during the silent era? We certainly have and so we've put together a program that we hope will provide a similar viewing experience. Although we will never see an original silent film program we imagine they were something like this...
STELLA DALLAS (Samuel Goldwyn Company - 1925)
Belle Bennett, Ronald Colman, Lois Moran, Alice Joyce, Jean Hersholt, Douglas Fairbanks Jr. Adapted for the screen by Frances Marion from the Olive Higgins Prouty novel. Directed by Henry King. ~ ~ ~ Classic tale of a well meaning mother (Belle Bennett) who comes to the painful realization she is preventing her daughter from having a better life. Direction, scenario and acting are superb. One of the finest films of the silent era.
DASH THROUGH THE CLOUDS (Biograph - 1912)
Mabel Normand, Fred Mace, Phillip Parmalee, Jack Pickford, Kate Bruce. ~ ~ ~ Chubby (Fred Mace) is fond of Josephine (Mabel Normand) but she seems to prefer Slim the Aviator. And if that isn't bad enough, poor Chubby finds a way to make matters even worse for himself. Mabel at Biograph.
MYSTERY OF THE DOUBLE CROSS - Chapter 3 : An Hour To Live (Pathe - 1917)
Mollie King, Leon Bary, Ralph Stuart. Directed by Louis J. Gasnier, William Parke. ~ ~ ~ Complications develop as Peter Hale continues to search for the girl of the Double Cross.
