No Need To Check Your Television --
“Silent September” All Month Long On LRPA After Dark!
Classic Films from Hollywood’s Silent Era
This Weekend’s Features:
Three Classic Comedies Starring Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton
and Harold Lloyd
Actions speak louder than words during the month of September on
LRPA After Dark! Join us each Friday and Saturday night at 10:30
p.m. for “Silent September,” as we pay homage to Hollywood’s
great silent film era.
Almost every genre of film -- action, comedy, romance, western,
horror, sci-fi -- can be traced back to the silent era that
began nearly 125 years ago and ran until the introduction of
“talkies” in the late 1920s. Many technical and artistic
elements that modern moviegoers take for granted, such as scene
continuity, close up shots, enhanced lighting and feature-length
films, were developed during this important time in the history
of cinema. Lakes Region Public Access Television is proud to
highlight some of the most interesting films of this period.
continue our month of silent films this weekend (September 14 &
15) with three classic comedy shorts. First up is 1921’s “Never
Weaken” (28 minutes), one of Harold Lloyd’s amazing “thrill
comedies,” a trademark of his extraordinary career. Lloyd’s
character, “The Boy,” is deeply in love with “The Girl” (Mildred
Davis). Through a series of misunderstandings, The Boy believes
that The Girl is going to marry someone else. His misery leads
him to some very drastic – and wildly dangerous – measures,
which, happily, do not turn out the way that he had planned.
This short is a treasure for the silent film fan. Our second
feature, 1921’s “The Play House” (22 minutes), stars Buster
Keaton, who also co-wrote and co-directed the short. The film
opens with a much-heralded “dream sequence,” one that employed
wonderful special effect techniques that allowed Keaton to play
multiple roles at the same time. This film has always been a
favorite of Keaton’s many fans, and is a delight from start to
finish. Our final short is 1917’s “The Immigrant” (24 minutes),
starring (as well as written and directed by) Charlie Chaplin.
Chaplin’s beloved “Little Tramp” is an immigrant traveling to
America on a comically difficult voyage. While on board the ship
he meets Edna Purviance, another traveler, and has many
adventures before they land in New York. The second half of the
film finds Charlie trying to adapt to his new life in the US. It
is every bit as charming as any full-length Chaplin feature. The
actor once said that this film “ … touched me more than any film
“Never Weaken,” “The Play House” and “The Immigrant” were all
critical and box office successes. Where else but on LRPA can
you enjoy Harold Lloyd, Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin all in
one glorious night? So grab your popcorn and join LRPA after
dark for a night of daredevil stunts, cinematic innovation, and
sweetly romantic comedy.
Mark your calendars for LRPA’s entire Silent September lineup:
September 14 & 15: Three Classic Comedy Shorts:
1921’s “Never Weaken,” starring Harold Lloyd
1921’s “The Play House,” starring Buster Keaton

Letter To The Editor
Pets? Got Vets?
Hampshire does not have a College of Veterinary Medicine of its
own, so its would-be vets must go out of state for training. To
help pay for this, the state had a program that paid the
difference between in-state and out-of-state tuition at two vet
schools in New England: Tufts and Cornell.
Note that this was for a maximum of 2 seats/year at each of the
two schools, a maximum outlay of $48,000 in a
daughter, Gabriele, was the beneficiary of this program when she
graduated from college in 2008 and was admitted at Cornell. This
made more than a $12,000 a year difference for her first two
years. Tuition in-state was still over $32,000!
in 2010, the program was cancelled by the Bill O’Brien-led NH
Legislature. At the same time, funding for the University System
was drastically cut and continues at a level 35% less than it
was in 1988.
result is that UNH has the highest in-state tuition IN THE
COUNTRY and its graduates have the highest amount of student
loans IN THE COUNTRY. And as a consequence, many students leave
the state for college and never come back. My daughter did.
This is why I am running for the House. Education funding in NH
- from Keno-funded kindergarten to college and beyond - is
inadequate. And because it is financed so heavily with local
property taxes, it is driving people out of their homes.
is time to restructure our system of taxation. Let’s stop
“shucking’ and jivin’” and cutting and shifting.
