The Festival’s closing night attraction
will be “The Black Pirate,” a silent
feature made in 1926 and starring Douglas Fairbanks.
It is a fitting program for the Columbus, which opened
its doors that very year and will be accompanied live
by an original score composed and performed by the noted
Alloy Orchestra. Preceding the silent classic will be
the presentation of restored fragments of “My
Lady of the Lilacs,” a recently rediscovered silent
film made in Rhode Island in 1916 and written by pioneering
female screenwriter Beta Breuil.
