ABOUT THE SILENT REVUE SERIES
Silent Revue is the Toronto’s celebrated ongoing exploration of Silent Cinema – the only year-round dedicated selection of silent films in a theatrical venue. All (more…)
Circus Dreams continues with one of the most iconic clown films of all time—LAUGH, CLOWN, LAUGH. Starring the Master of Disguise—Lon Chaney—LAUGH, CLOWN, LAUGH is key masterwork in Chaney’s filmography.
Having found a young child abandoned, Tito raises the girl as his own daughter. But when Simonetta (a fourteen-year-old Loretta Young in one of her earliest roles) falls in love with a rapscallion of a rich and spoiled Count—played to roguish perfection by Nils Asther—Tito must confront his conflicted romantic feelings for the woman he raised from infancy. With a broken heart and perched high above the circus ring, Tito walks a tightrope to tragedy and despair. – ALICIA FLETCHER
