Al Christie Silent Comedies
Retro Format Films on 8mm Presents:

Mack Sennett and Hal Roach were rivaled by an unjustly forgotten giant, the Christie Studios. Christie's style was often risqué, sometimes bizarre and even borderline surreal, but always witty and hilarious.

Films include:

Dorothy Devore in “Know Thy Wife” (1918), a gender-bending marriage farce with a gay subtext.

Fay Tincher in “Rowdy Ann” (1919), an ahead-of-its-time gender role comedy about a young cowgirl sent back East to school by her parents in hopes that she will become a lady.

Bobby Vernon in “All Jazzed Up” (1920), a hilarious comedy of misunderstandings with amazing film of downtown Los Angeles/Bunker Hill.

Billy Dooley in “Sailor Beware” (1927), a bizarre comedy about an infected guinea pig terrorizing an entire city that must be seen to be believed!

Frances Lee as a surprisingly scantily-clad chorus girl in the scandalous “Reckless Rosie” (1929).

And much more!

With live piano accompaniment by Cliff Retallick.

Christie's great-niece, Jeanette Ko, will be on hand to discuss the Christie legacy and her upcoming documentary!
