ABOUT THE PROGRAM

The Keystone Film Company, under the guidance of pioneering producer and director Mack Sennett, was the birthplace of classic American slapstick comedy. This historic studio was at one time home to a staggering number of silent screen luminaries including Mabel Normand, Roscoe “Fatty” Arbuckle, Harold Lloyd, Gloria Swanson, Wallace Beery, Harry Langdon, Marie Dressler, Ben Turpin, The Keystone Cops, Ford Sterling, Charley Chase, Al St. John, Mack Swain, Edgar Kennedy, Billy Bevan, Louise Fazenda, Eddie Quillan, and countless others. Even Hollywood icon Charlie Chaplin, still the world’s most recognized actor, introduced his beloved Tramp character under the auspices of Keystone. Later, under the Mack Sennett Comedies banner, Sennett went on to produce a new generation of sound comedies, some in early color, featuring the likes of W.C. Fields, Bing Crosby, Lloyd Hamilton, Andy Clyde, and more.

Free Screening Saturday May 25: Pierre Etaix’s “Yo Yo”

Pierre Etaix

Imagine there was an Academy Award winning comedian and clown who worked with Jacques Tati and Jerry Lewis… whose films were compared to the films of Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin… a comic whose fans include Woody Allen, Martin Scorcese and David Lynch… BUT YOU HAVE NEVER HEARD OF HIM OR SEEN ANY OF HIS FILMS. That will be rectified at the May Creative League Screening!

Pierre Etaix

YO YO by Pierre Etaix (1965)
FREE SCREENING. All welcome.

Animation Resources Screening Room
Pacoima, CA

Pierre Etaix

Yo Yo is the story of a 1920s billionaire who, although having everything he fancies, is not happy living in a cavernous old castle. He meets a beautiful circus actress and envies her simple life, but is trapped by his class. When the stock market crashes, he is rendered both poor and free to join the circus where his love interest is performing. They fall madly in love. As time passes, they have a son who begins in the circus as a clown, but grows to become a successful movie star. The story comes full circle as the son reclaims the life of the father… but with an important difference in attitude.

Pierre Etaix

A French comedy master whose films went unseen for decades as a result of legal tangles, director-actor Pierre Etaix is a treasure the cinematic world has rediscovered and taken up with relish. His work can be placed in the spectrum of classic physical comedy with that of Jacques Tati, Buster Keaton and Jerry Lewis, but it also stands alone. These films, influenced by Etaix’s experiences as a circus acrobat and clown and by the silent film comedies he adored, are elegantly deadpan, but as an on-screen presence, Etaix radiates warmth.

Pierre Etaix

“Pierre Etaix is a one-man new wave of comedy. A clown, magician, illustrator and cabaret artist whose films recall the genius of Keaton, Chaplin and Lloyd, he’s probably the finest physical comedian you’ve never heard of.” -Terry Gilliam

“He is cinema in its purist form. This little man is a giant.” Jerry Lewis

Creative League: “Wings” FREE Screening April 13th

Wings

“Wings” was the only true silent film to ever win an Academy Award. Directed by William A. Wellman, himself a WWI aviator, the film is best know for its thrilling aerial dogfights. The story involves two young friends who train to become fighter pilots, both involved with the same girl. The film stars Charles “Buddy” Rogers, Richard Arlen. Gary Cooper and the “It Girl”, Clara Bow. When asked to describe the movie, Miss Bow replied, “Wings is a man’s picture and I’m just the whipped cream on top of the pie.”

Wings

For many years, “Wings’ was thought to be a lost film, but a print was uncovered in France, and in 1997 it was preserved by the National Film Registry. We will be screening a brand new digital restoration accompanied by spectacular 5:1 sound that flies the sound of the roaring engines right over your head. The musical score is re-orchestrated from the original live music score from 1927. This is silent film at its best.
