Girl Shy, with Clark Wilson, theatre organ
Comic genius Harold Lloyd’s masterpiece, 1924’s Girl Shy, is a silent film tour de force of subtle wit, physical slapstick, and old-time charm. Today’s premier theatre organist, Clark Wilson, provides it with original, period authentic accompaniment. And the evening begins with a classic Laurel and Hardy short!
Oliver stands to inherit a large fortune from his rich Uncle Bernal, with the condition that he be happily married. But when Mrs. Hardy walks out just before Uncle Bernal is due for a visit, Stanley is pressed into duty (and into drag) to impersonate Oliver’s loving spouse.
Girl Shy (1924)
A shy, stuttering bachelor, Harold, decides to write a guide book that details to other bashful men how to find a girlfriend. After falling in love with Mary, our hero must save her from marrying the villain of the film.
