Upcoming Kansas Silent Film Festival

As readers of this blog know, Louise Brooks was born in Cherryvale, Kansas and grew up in Wichita, Kansas. That state hosts a notable, and long running silent film festival which this year takes place February 28 and February 29. Admission is FREE to the event, which is held on the campus of Washburn University in Topeka. More information HERE.

Underworld (1927), a film akin to Brooks' lost The City Gone Wild (1927) which features Love Em and Leave Em co-star Evelyn Brent, is among the festival highlights. Tracey Goessel, author of The First King of Hollywood: The Life of Douglas Fairbanks, is the banquet dinner speaker. And the Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra, who have recorded their score for the Kino Lorber DVD release of Beggars of Life (1928), will be providing live musical accompaniment.
