Composer/pianist Robert Bruce robertbrucemusic.com performs his live original scores to 4 different 1920s silent film programs February 1 – 4, 2017 (WednesdaySaturday) at The Grand Theatre – McManus Studio Theatre, all shows starting at 7:30 pm.
 
Wednesday, February 1, 20177:30 pm – Silent Comedy Shorts (1919 – 1923) – A program of 4 silent comedy shorts, one by each of the great masters of silent film comedy – Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, Harold Lloyd and Harry Langdon.

 
Thursday, February 2, 20177:30 pm – “It” (1927) starring Clara Bow – Based on a Novella by Elinor Glyn that was originally serialized in Cosmopolitan magazine, this was the film that turned actress Clara Bow into a major star and led people to henceforth label her “The IT Girl”.  A brilliant and well-played drama – light comedy that allows Clara Bow to really shine, “It” was, of course, the 1920s code word for sex appeal.
 
Friday, February 3, 20177:30 pm – “Safety Last” (1923) starring Harold Lloyd – The image of Harold Lloyd hanging from the clock in “Safety Last” has been one of Hollywood’s most enduring icons.  With its brilliant slow-building final scene and many clever gags along the way, this hilarious silent comedy continues to delight film fans of all ages. 
 
Saturday, February 4, 20177:30 pm – “The General” (1926) starring Buster Keaton – Widely considered one of the greatest films ever made, “The General” is a unique cinematic gem that Keaton also considered his greatest accomplishment.
