2 February (Saturday) Stony Words: Silent movie 'A Couple of Down and Outs' (with recorded piano accompaniment) in the Parish Hall
5:00pm-7:00pm
A Couple of Down and Outs is a silent film from 1923 directed by Walter Summers and starring Edna Best, Rex Davis and George Foley.The film was lost for over 80 years until it was discovered by the son of film-maker GB Samuelson at a silent film festival in Italy. The recovered copy was in poor condition but has now been digitally restored by the British Film Institute Archives to its full, captivating glory. A recorded, specially composed piano accompaniment by John Sweeney will bring the film to life. Described as “the original War Horse”, the film tells the story of Danny Creath, an unemployed war veteran, who rescues his old horse Jack from being sent to slaughter. Pursued by the police, he takes shelter in a house where a young woman, reminded of her own brother who was killed in the war, helps him to escape.
There will be a short introduction by the film-maker's son, Sir Sydney Samuelson and although this is a FREE event, donations to the British Film Institute would be very welcome.The viewing in the Parish Hall is for a maximum 50 people, so booking in advance is vital via email or call Lesley on 01908 567404.
