We will have the leading silent film pianists in the UK, Costas Fotopoulos, John Sweeney, Lillian Henly and Cyrus Gabrysch.

This Second Silent Laughter Saturday will include classic comedies from the USA, Great Britain and continental Europe. Author and film-maker Kevin Brownlow will introduce one of Harold Lloyd’s personal favourites among his feature-length films, The Kid Brother (1927).

 

Visiting from the USA will be author and historian Anthony Slide, giving a talk – with clips – about the brilliant but sadly neglected comedienne Alice Howell.

Anthony Slide has recently written the first full-length biography of Alice Howell and copies will be available to buy (and have signed!) on the day.
