RI Selects: Nothing Silent About It

February 12 @ 7 p.m.
Rural Intelligence ArtsExperience silent film as it was intended to be.  A free screening of the 1922 comedy, Grandma’s Boy, starring Harold Lloyd, will be accompanied by live piano, vocal and percussion by Donald Sosin and Joanna Seaton.

Harold Lloyd was the most successful silent comedian of the 20’s, eclipsing Chaplin’s and Keaton’s box office receipts. The film, a coming-of-age story with hapless Harold outwitting bullies and winning the girl of his dreams, is filled with gags courtesy of writer Hal Roach (Our Gang, Laurel and Hardy).

Donald Sosin was the resident pianist at MoMA for five years and currently plays for the Film Society of Lincoln Center and BAM, the Whitney Museum and at film seminars at Harvard, Yale and other campuses here and abroad. Joanna Seaton has sung with jazz great Dick Hyman at the 92nd St. YM-YWHA, and appeared in many Off-Broadway and regional theater productions. Learn more about their work at
