Alice Howell Comedy Shorts

Silent with live musical accompaniment by Ben Model; intro by film historian Steve Massa

Tickets $10 for children 12 and under
After breaking in with Keystone Studios, Alice Howell headlined her own series of comedy shorts for various studios, including L-KO, Century, Reelcraft and Universal. Billed as the "Scream of the Screen" and "the Female Chaplin," Howell specialized in working-class character types and knockabout physical comedy. Her daughter Yvonne also performed in silent comedy shorts and later married director/cinematographer George Stevens. This program features new DCP transfers of several rare comedy shorts from the Library of Congress archive:

FATHER WAS A LOAFER (1915)

HER LUCKY DAY (1920)
A CONVICT'S HAPPY BRIDE (1920)
