Preservationist Stefan Dröessler In Person!
Rediscovered Hal Roach Comedians
Co-presented by the Munich Film Museum

Join us for this program of new restorations from the Munich Film Museum!

Due to the enormous success of Laurel & Hardy, the Hal Roach Studios launched a female comedy team. Tall, gaunt, stern Anita Garvin and short, gauche, wide-eyed Marion Byron together made only three slapstick films, reveling in the destructive potential of meat, fried eggs, infants and ice cream cones: “Feed ’Em and Weep” (1928, 20 min.), “Going Ga-Ga” (1929, 20 min.) and “A Pair of Tights” (1929, 20 min.).

Berlin-born performer Max Davidson appears as a supporting actor in two of the Garvin & Byron shorts, and takes center stage for three hilarious comedies: “Why Girls Say No” (1927, 23 min.), “Jewish Prudence” (1927, 20 min.) and “Pass The Gravy” (1928, 23 min.).
