Description

On Friday June 16th in conjunction with the Library of Congress' annual Mostly Lost event, the Packard Campus will be screening an evening of silent films. Tickets are free but due to the large number of Mostly Lost attendees it is suggested to obtain a ticket via this Eventbrite page to ensure there will be a seat for you. This is NOT a ticket to the Mostly Lost workshop, only a ticket for the free evening screening. To register for Mostly Lost 6 visit https://mostlylostsix.eventbrite.com.


The silent film program will begin at 7:30 p.m. with screenings of “The Devil” (1915), "The Were Tiger" (1925) and "The Stolen Play" (1917) presented by Kelly Robinson and accompanied by Philip Carli at the Packard Campus. Prior to the screening beginning at 6:30pm, during intermission and after the screening has concluded there will be vendors selling moving image related memorabilia in the lobby. The event is free and open to the public.

THE DEVIL (1915)

Artist Harry Lang is commissioned by a wealthy gentleman to paint a portrait of his wife, Isabella—who just happens to be Lang's former lover. Wishing to quell gossip, Isabella connives to marry off a friend to the artist. With his knowledge of their secrets holding them in his thrall, the Devil uses his supernatural powers and trickery to play puppet master to the love rectangle. Directed by Reginald Barker. Produced by Thomas H. Ince. Starring Edward Connelly, Bessie Barriscale and Arthur Maude.

THE WERE TIGER (1925)

The daughter of a mine owner has harrowing adventures in her struggle to reach her father through the jungles of the Malay Peninsula. Her travel is impeded by armed men and a mysterious beast that the natives describe as a man-eating tiger that preys on children and can transform into a human. Starring Hedda Nova, Frank J. Glendon, George Carrossella, and Jules Cowles

THE STOLEN PLAY (1917)

A blind playwright is engaged to his assistant and the two are close to completion of a new play. A play that is so dark and morbid that the two are on the brink of breakdowns. Admiring the playwright’s previous work, Leroux, a greedy agent, will stop at nothing to secure the play for himself. Directed by Harry Harvey. Starring Ruth Roland, Edward J. Brady and William Conklin.
