Pianist Rob Humphreville to accompany the film: The Kid Brother (1927)
February 21 @ 7:30 pm
Pianist Rob Humphreville returns to accompany the film: The Kid Brother (1927) at 7:30 pm in the Large Meeting Room. Silent-comedy legend Harold Lloyd goes west in this irresistible blend of action, romance, and slapstick invention. The bespectacled everyman is at his inimitable best as Harold Hickory, the gentle son of a prominent lawman who lives in the shadow of his rough-and-tumble brothers. When a traveling medicine show rolls into town, it brings with it excitement, the possibility of love, and a chance for Harold to prove his mettle. Deftly balancing Lloyd’s brilliant sight gags and thrilling set pieces—including an epic, knock-down, drag-out fight aboard an abandoned ship—The Kid Brother is a hilarious and heartwarming high-water mark of early screen comedy.
