*Cinema Arts Centre Presents “Anything But Silent: Alice Howell Comedies”
March 23 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm| 11$ – 16$
Silent film actress Alice Howell was a women’s film pioneer. She was one of only a handful of silent comediennes who ventured into the “men’s terrain” of rough-house physical comedy. At her peak, Howell’s name was as well-known to moviegoers as any of the popular male comics of the day. Sometimes called “the female Charlie Chaplin”, Howell was one of the first female comediennes to really make her mark on the film industry. A live improvised organ accompaniment will be provided by Ben Model, one of the country’s premiere silent film accompanists.
