A SNEAK PREVIEW OF A FACETS EXCLUSIVE!
AMERICAN SLAPSTICK 2
"Europeans responded to these roiling troubles with Dadaism, Surrealism, Cubism, Expressionism…and other gee-I'm-depressed-isms. But things were different here. Here, we made light of darkness, and laughed at pain, threw pies at the Kaiser." -David Kalat
American Slapstick 2 is the latest collection of silent comedy rarities, B-sides, and one-hit wonders released from Facets and All Day Entertainment. Featuring selected works from Harold Lloyd, Syd Chaplin, Snub Pollard, and many others, silent film fans will marvel at these comedic gems, many of which were thought lost long ago. Mastered from archival elements and rare collections, all the comedy shorts have new musical scores. It will be a wonderful way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
Complied for DVD release by David Kalat, U.S.A., 1915-1937, DVD 75 mins.
CineChat: A Q&A with author/film historian/archivist David Kalat will follow the screening.
