Harold Lloyd in "For Heaven's Sake" Sun 10/20 *FREE*


On Sunday, October 20th at 7:00, the Emmanuel Presbyterian Church (NYC) is hosting a free evening of silent comedies! Wind down your week – or kick off the one that's starting – with two solid hours of belly-laugh-inducing classic comedies.  These 1920s films will be presented with live musical scores by renowned silent film accompanist Ben Model.

The main feature on the program is Harold Lloyd in FOR HEAVEN'S SAKE (1926). "A man with a mansion…and a miss with a mission!"  Spoiled rich man Harold inadvertently falls for a pretty young woman whose father's skid row mission is threatened by gangsters. Harold's pals try to stop him from marrying her, but on the wedding day there's a hilarious drunken race to the altar.  Preceding the feature are the shorts: THE SCARECROW (1921) with Buster Keaton, LIMOUSINE LOVE (1927) with Charley Chase, and BACON GRABBERS (1929) with Laurel and Hardy.

The films will be accompanied on the James Chapel's
3-manual/44-rank Holtkamp pipe organ
The film prints are courtesy of archivist Bruce Lawton, who will also project them. Ben Model will perform his original accompaniment on the St. James Chapel's 3-manual 44-rank Holtkamp pipe organ.
