SILENT COMEDY RARETIES This program is partially funded by the Suffolk County Ex
Tuesday, July 26 at 7:30pm
Members $9 / Public $13

Live Musical Accompaniment by Ben Model on the Cinema's Miditzer Theater Organ!

Chaplin, Keaton and Lloyd were only the tip of the comedy iceberg during the silent film era.
These six great comedy shorts, all rarities from the archives of the Library of
Congress, feature comics you may not know but who were major laugh-makers during their
timeand still are today. The comedy team of Ham & Bud are The Bogus Booking Agents (1916);
Mr. and Mrs. Sidney Drew  pioneers of the situation comedy  remember Her Anniversaries
(1917), and Marcel Perez (a/k/a "Tweedy") takes a romp around the old Kalem studios in
Cliffside, NJ in You're Next (1919). When Knights Were Cold (1923), starring a pre-Ollie Stan
Laurel, was lost until a couple years ago and its re-premiere at a classic comedy film festival last
year brought the house down. Rounding out the program we find cross-eyed Ben Turpin
running for office and getting caught in an affair in A Blonde's Revenge (1926), and Charley
Chase takes a cue from Charles Lindbergh in the aerial comedy Us (1927). USA, 100 min., b/w, 35mm print from the Library of Congress
