Kick off the 2018 Silent Film Series with a blend of genres, beginning with a screening of the 1923 drama “Where the North Begins.” The film features the dynamic canine star, Rin Tin Tin, and the story of his adoption by a wolf pack in the snowy and frozen Great North. Rin Tin Tin is raised by the pack as one of their own. A few years later, Rin Tin Tin saves a man from certain death, and begins to feel a very strong kinship – even stronger than the one with his pack. Featuring the most celebrated canine move hero of all time, “Where the North Begins” is recommended to any dog lover.

The second film of the night is Buster Keaton’s “The Frozen North” (1922). Set in Alaska, Keaton plays an unusual role of a buffoonish villain – causing trouble everywhere he goes. The film is a spoof on famous western films of the day, particularly those starring William S. Hart. Interestingly enough, Hart did not find this film funny.

Running time: “Where the North Begins” (1923), 60 minutes. “The Frozen North” (1922), 17 minutes.

Total running time: 77 minutes
