LES DEUX TIMIDES (TWO TIMID SOULS, Rene Clair, 1928)
In this playful farce by innovative comedy provocateur Rene Clair, a shy trial lawyer the charmingly Keaton-esque Pierre Batcheff must find the nerve to court the woman he's in love with before her mild-mannered father unwittingly marries her off to a convicted wife-abuser. Clair peppers the proceedings with sight gags drawn from a bottomless bag of tricks: split-screen frenzy, slow-motion absurdity, phony tragedy and pure theatrical mayhem. With live translation of French intertitles. LIVE ACCOMPANIMENT BYBAGUETTE QUARTETTE
