This Friday, Saturday & Sunday, February 12–14!
Our own local silent film festival is coming this weekend, and it's all on-line, socially-distant, and includes interviews with many silent film historians including Leonard Maltin!
It's our 2nd annual film festival, but it's the first to include inductees into our Newhallywood Silent Film Hall of Fame. This year's inductees are Georges Mélièse and our own William S. Hart!
The festival theme is “Scandals and Tragedies,” but there's lots of fascinating data for all fans of silent film, including fans of William S. Hart.
