Silent Movie with Organist Clark Wilson

Organist Clark Wilson returns to Hoover Auditorium at 8 p.m. Tuesday, June 25 to accompany a double feature of Buster Keaton’s hilarious silent films, “The Navigator” (1924) and “One Week” (1920). This Silent Movie Night is supported by Peter & Debbie Stephens. 

“The Navigator” is a classic film of the Golden Age of Comedy set on a 500-foot yacht. The silent movie brilliantly exemplifies Keaton’s ability to mime rich humor from the inanimate.

Modern audiences consider “One Week” to be one of Keaton’s best short films. The film stars Keaton and Sybil Seely as newlyweds who receive a portable house that can be easily assembled in one week.

Wilson, one of the most recognized scorers of silent photoplays in America, works exclusively with the organ to develop historically accurate musical accompaniments as they were performed in major pictures during the heyday of silent film. 

He began his scoring career in 1980 and has successfully toured North America with hundreds of film presentations at universities, performing arts centers, theaters, film festivals and conventions. 

Wilson’s work has led to performances for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences and the Los Angeles Philharmonic Society.
