      LACO's 23rd Annual Silent Film

      Join Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra on Sunday, May 20 at 6:30 pm for their 23rd Annual Silent Film. The evening features Harold Lloyd’s films, The Kid Brother (1927) and High and Dizzy (1920), accompanied by the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra conducted by Carl Davis. Music for The Kid Brother was commissioned by Thames Television for Channel 4. Newly composed music by Carl Davis for High and Dizzy receives its US premiere on May 20. Academy® Award-winning actor Dustin Hoffman serves as honorary chairman, and Hanna M. Kennedy and Roger L. Mayer are co-chairmen. Following the films, the Chamber Orchestra hosts a supper party for VIP patrons under the stars on the Ahmanson Terrace outside Royce Hall with a buffet supper. Tickets for the Silent Film are $35 (general seating) and $80 (priority seating). Tickets at $350 include the film and celebratory post-film supper. For ticket information please contact LACO at 213 622 7001 x 1.

      The Kid Brother (1927) The most important family in Hickoryville is (naturally enough) the Hickorys, with sheriff Jim and his tough manly sons Leo and Olin. The timid youngest son, Harold, doesn't have the muscles to match up to them, so he has to use his wits to win the respect of his strong father and also the love of beautiful Mary.

      High and Dizzy (1920) is a short film, which revolves around a young woman who sleepwalks and the doctor who is attempting to treat her. The climactic scene involves the young woman sleepwalking precariously on the outside ledge of a tall building. A subplot has Lloyd and his friend getting inebriated on homemade liquor and then trying to avoid a prohibition-era policeman who pursues them for being drunk.
