Perfect Match – Silent Movies & the Mighty Wurlitzer

Despite the moniker, “silent movies” were never silent.  Music was, and is, an essential part of the experience of attending a “silent” movie, contributing to the atmosphere and giving the audience vital emotional cues that heighten their understanding of the film and its impact on them.

Safety Last: Silent film accompanied by Clark Wilson on the Mighty Wurlitzer

SAFETY LAST! is a 1923 romantic comedy silent film starring Harold Lloyd. It includes one of the most famous images from the silent film era: Lloyd clutching the hands of a large clock as he dangles from the outside of a skyscraper above moving traffic. The film was highly successful and critically hailed, and it cemented Lloyd’s status as a major figure in early motion pictures. It is still popular at revivals, and it is viewed today as one of the great film comedies.
