KID BOOTS (1926)

Live musical accompaniment by Donald Sosin. Intro and post-screening book event with David Weinstein, author of "The Eddie Cantor Story," available for sales & signing in the lobby

Stunning new 4K restoration from the original nitrate negative!
Singing stage star Eddie Cantor made his screen debut in this 1926 silent film, and though deprived of the benefit of his voice, Cantor makes a convincing turn as a slapstick comedian. Cantor reputedly gave credit for his on-the-job training to his incandescent co-star Clara Bow, already a veteran screen comedienne and about to achieve top-billed stardom with MANTRAP and IT. Cantor is tailor's apprentice Samuel "Kid" Boots, who becomes a combination golf caddy/personal security man for millionaire Lawrence Gray, who's trying to get out of an inconvenient marriage to gold-digger Natalie Kingston. Hijinks, chases and hair-raising stunts ensue. DIR Frank Tuttle; SCR Tom Gibson, from the stage play by William Anthony McGuire and Otto A. Harbach; PROD Jesse L. Lasky, Adolph Zukor. U.S., 1926, b&w, 77 min. NOT RATED
