Silent Sundays Series: Ella Cinders (1926)

January 27, 2019 @ 2:30 pm

If you haven’t had the chance to see a silent film at the Playhouse, visit Sunday afternoon, January 27th at 2:30pm. As part of our Silent Sundays series, we’ll be screening 1926’s Ella Cinders featuring silent film star Colleen Moore, a film that is “full of laughs that reach your heart.” 

Adapted from the popular comic strip loosely based on the Cinderella story, Moore plays Ella, a small town girl ill-treated by her wicked step mother and stepsisters. In the hopes of winning a trip to Hollywood and getting a part in a film, she enters a local contest. Does she win the contest and become a Hollywood star?

 A wonderful comedienne, her charming personality and quick wit shine in the film. “Between funny faces, genuine emotion, and some dead on- impressions, Moore never misses” (moviessilently.com).

Accompanying the film on the Mission Playhouse’s 1924 Wurlitzer pipe organ is American Theatre Organ Society’s Organist of the Year (2012) Mark Herman.

Next up in our Silent Sundays series are Alfred Hitchcock’s crime thriller Blackmail (1929) on April 14th, and the two color technicolor swashbuckling adventure, The Black Pirate (1926) starring Douglas Fairbanks on June 2nd.
