Thanks to "JustMe" for my little packet of goodies from the San Francisco Silent Film Festival last weekend. Sounds like a great time was had by all. I wish I could have been there. 

The program was written by Jeffrey Vance, who also introduced the films, which included The Kid & The Gold Rush with live accompaniment by the SF Chamber Orchestra conducted by Timothy Brock. There was also a showing of Kid Auto Races At Venice as well as some Mutuals. It's hard to see the button on the left because of the flash, but it has Charlie and Edna on it. I love the mask!

Thanks again, JM!

  1. You are most welcome! We all had to show the masks as they took a photo of the audience in total - I haven't seen that photo posted anywhere, but I'll keep checking the Castro site.

    1. Just this morning the official Chaplin Facebook page posted this link with some photos of the masks. I couldn't help thinking, "Hey, I have one of those!"
