Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra returns to provide live musical accompaniment for back-to-back evenings of silent films featuring the legendary “Queen of the Screen” Marion Davies, one of the great comedic actresses of the silent era.
“THE PATSY” (1928, NR) Friday, March 29, 7 pm
Marion Davies stars as Pat, who has a hopeless crush on her older sister’s boyfriend. But before she can work on her romance, she must gain the respect of her domineering mother (hilariously portrayed by Marie Dressler). A highlight is a scene where Davies tries to impress a man by impersonating contemporary film stars Mae Murray, Pola Negri and Lillian Gish.
