Silent Sundays Series: Our Hospitality (1923)

Date

Location

San Gabriel Mission Playhouse
320 South Mission Drive
San Gabriel , California 91776 United States

Silent Sundays at the Mission Playhouse returns Sunday afternoon, September 9th at 2:30pm with 1923’s ‘Our Hospitality’ directed by and starring the brilliant Buster Keaton. Set in the South in 1831, two rival families have been at odds for decades: the McKays and the Canfields. Keaton plays William McKay who is traveling to his childhood home to claim an inheritance. On his train ride home, he meets a girl he becomes smitten with, Virginia, who invites him to dinner at her family’s residence. What he soon finds out though is that Virginia is a Canfield and her father and brothers want his head. His effort to delay the Canfield men’s plot leads to big laughs, thrilling stunts, and edge of your seat suspense.

Filmed near Lake Tahoe and featuring beautiful cinematography, ‘Our Hospitality’ involved various members of the Keaton clan. His father Joe Keaton portrayed the train engineer, his on screen leading lady Virginia was his real life love, Natalie, and the baby in the film was played by his son, Buster Keaton Jr.

Variety called the film a “comedy masterpiece,” writing, “The picture is splendidly cast, flawlessly directed, and intelligently photographed.”

Accompanying the film on the Playhouse’s 1924 Mighty Wurlitzer theater pipe organ is American Theatre Organ Society’s Organist of the Year (2012) Mark Herman.

The series continues with ‘The Phantom of the Opera’ (1925) starring Lon Chaney on October 28th, ‘Ella Cinders’ (1926) on January 27th, Alfred Hitchcock’s ‘Blackmail’ (1929) on April 14th, and ‘The Black Pirate’ (1926) on June 2nd.
