GSTOS presents Buster Keaton in Steamboat Bill Jr (1928) with live organ accompaniment by Juan Cardona, Jr playing the 2/7 Wurlitzer Model E-X: “The Biggest Little Wurlitzer”. Co-produced with Union County Performing Arts Center.
The 35mm film print is being provided by the Library of Congress.
A steamboat captain receives a telegram informing him that his son who he has not seen for many years will be coming to visit. Eagerly expecting a strapping young lad who will help him compete with his arch-rival, he is disappointed with the effete progeny that instead shows up. Best remembered for its climactic cyclone sequence in which Keaton performs a number of death-defying stunts whilst an entire town is destroyed around him, STEAMBOAT BILL JR. was Buster Keaton’s last independent silent comedy and also one of his finest.

GSTOS presents Harold Lloyd in The Freshmen (1925) with live organ accompaniment by Ben Model playing the 2/7 Wurlitzer Model E-X: “The Biggest Little Wurlitzer”. Co-produced with Union County Performing Arts Center.
The 35mm film print is being provided by the Harold Lloyd Trust
Harold Lloyd’s biggest box-office hit was this silent comedy gem, featuring the befuddled everyman at his eager best as a new college student. Though he dreams of being a big man on campus, the freshman’s careful plans inevitably go hilariously awry, be it on the football field or at the Fall Frolic. But he gets a climactic chance to prove his mettle—and impress the sweet girl he loves—in one of the most famous sports sequences ever filmed. This crowd-pleaser is a gleeful showcase for Lloyd’s slapstick brilliance and incandescent charm
