Girl Shy, Clark Wilson

200 Pennsylvania Avenue, Mt. Gretna, PA 17064 (Mt. Gretna Playhouse) 7:30 pm

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!

“Undoubtedly the most hilarious Laurel & Hardy of all” – Vicdru
