Here Is The News


The Tenth Hippodrome Silent Film Festival, AKA Hippfest, will be held in March, and you can buy tickets now.

I’m contributing programme notes to: Julien Duvivier’s POIL DE CAROTTE, which gets live music by Stephen Horne; Fred Niblo’s THE MARK OF ZORRO, accompanied by Rapido Mariachi; and the closing gala, Marcel L’Herbier L’HOMME DU LARGE, which will be presented with not only Neil Brand & Frank Bockius providing live music, but actor Paul McGann reading the translation of the fabulous intertitles.

But there’s much more than that going on (Laurel & Hardy! Keaton! Dietrich!). If you’re a movie-type person in Scotland, you simply must go. If you’re further afield, do it if it’s possible for you. Tell ’em Shadowplay sent you.
