Capital Celluloid 2023 — Day 88: Wed Mar 29

The Love Expert (Kirkland, 1920): Cinema Museum, 7.30pm

Cinema Museum introduction (to this 35mm silent screening):
In this comedy, Constance Talmadge plays Babs, a girl who is thrown out of boarding school because she’s more interested in studying romance than she is in studying books. The object of her affections is Jim Winthrop, but before they can wed, he has to find suitable mates for his two plain sisters, Dorcas and Matilda – and Winthrop’s elderly aunt, too. To speed things up, Babs takes it upon herself to find them all men.

Here (and above) is an extract.
