Comedy Gold on the Silver Screen
April 17 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Join us for a guided tour through the past 100 years of outstanding comedies in John LeGear’s film history presentation Comedy Gold on the Silver Screen. Witness the evolution of humor in film since the arrival of Charlie Chaplin in Hollywood in 1914 and enjoy a taste of television comedy in this swift-moving tribute to outstanding writing, direction, and performance.
In addition to laughs, you’ll learn of little-known insights and fresh perspectives on some of film history’s comedy classics, among them Buster Keaton’s “The General” (1926); Cary Grant and his delightful aunts Josephine Hull and Jean Adair in “Arsenic and Old Lace” (1944); “Some Like it Hot” (1959); “Young Frankenstein” (1974); “When Harry Met Sally” (1989); and Seth MacFarlane’s talking teddy bear “ted” (2012).
