This has gotten me to thinking about my Grandmother on my Father's side. To help make ends meet for her growing family, Ermine played piano accompaniments to silent movies in a theatre in Madison, Wisconsin. It could have been The Majestic, which was still in business when I was growing up in Madison.
According to Wikipedia, "The Garage," directed in 1920 by Arbuckle, was the 14th film starring Arbuckle and Buster Keaton. It also features frequent co-star Luke the Dog. The film has the distinction of being among the very first to practice product placement; its prominent display of Red Crown Gasoline was criticized by the motion picture trade journal, Harrison's Reports. What I remember most from my single viewing of "The Garage" is how often somebody falls down. Falling down must have been just about the funniest thing one could imagine in 1920. I hope Dave brings a big crash cymbal.
So there's your Saturday evening entertainment! Live music, a classic film, product placement, lots of falling down, and all for a good cause.
