Our current season of Silent Sundays comes to a close with comic great Harold Lloyd’s 1927 film, The Kid Brother, on November 12th at 2:30pm!
Lloyd plays Harold Hickory, the son of the town sheriff. He is considered the odd ball of the family, different from his two burly older brothers. When his father is accused of stealing public funds, he uses his cleverness to help clear his family’s name.
Film critic Steven Greydanus wrote, “I find people who have never seen a silent film, and I make them watch The Kid Brother….People start out reluctant to participate, but by the end they’re thoroughly converted silent-film fans.”
“It’s one of Lloyd’s funniest films and one of his sweetest, a comedy driven by a devotion to family and romantic affection…” (Sean Axmaker, film critic).
Accompanying the film on our Mighty Wurlitzer theater pipe organ is Mark Herman. An American Theatre Organ Society Organist of the Year, Mr. Herman tours throughout the country and has performed abroad in Australia, New Zealand, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.
