Selection of silent films – Szeged screening
March 28. – 18:00 - 19:30
Our silent film screening will include three short comedies.
The protagonist of Algie the Miner (1912) has to prove he’s a real man for a year to marry Harry Lyons’ daughter. To do so, he must try his luck in a mining town. He may be the first so-called sissy character, or exaggeratedly feminine male character in a film.
In Charlie in the Studio (1916), the protagonist is an overworked assistant decorator in a film studio. The character, played by Chaplin, is constantly getting into mischief, getting into trouble with Goliath, his big-boned boss, and falling in love with an actress dressed as a man.
The Soilers, which premiered a hundred years ago, is a classic Stan Laurel comedy, a western spoof set during the gold rush, featuring a gay (camp) cowboy.
The films are accompanied on piano by Kristóf Darvas.
