March 29 Film Night: The Kid Brother

Movie: The Kid Brother starring Harold Lloyd WrightCome and enjoy a classic silent movie on St. John’s “big screen” accompanied by music performed live on the organ. It all starts at 7:30 p.m.

The Kid Brother (1927, 84 minutes) is a comedy starring Harold Lloyd, and is widely considered one of Lloyd’s best films.  In the frontier town of Hickoryville, Sheriff Jim Hickory lives along with his brawny sons Leo and Olin and his younger, less-muscular son, Harold. Since Harold lacks the muscle power of his brothers, he has to use his wits to win the respect of his father and the love of a beautiful young lady.

William O’Meara will provide live, improvised music on the St. John’s organ. O’Meara serves as the Cathedral Organist for St. Michael’s Cathedral, and performs in concerts both solo and as choral accompanist. He is also known for his improvised accompaniments to silent films, including films screened at Cinematheque Ontario.

Steven D. Greydanus, film critic for the National Catholic Register, has described The Kid Brother as “[Lloyd’s] masterpiece, and one of [Greydanus’s] all-time favourite entertainments”.
