‘Our Hospitality’

Wednesday’s column (read it here) previews the four movies I’ve chosen for the Ontario library’s weekly movie nights in April.

The series begins with “Our Hospitality,” a 1923 Buster Keaton comedy. The video above is a short clip from the movie, which you can read more about on Wikipedia.

    I never saw “Life is Beautiful” and don’t know why–I usually make it a point to see any year’s top film. You might see me on the 26th. If you ever have a travel theme, I would suggest, “The Big Trailer”–I was a teenager when I saw it–I can still hear the laughter in the theater, in my mind.

    Freedonia…Sylvania…Westinghouse…ok, thats a stretch but I do love Duck Soup. Can you please remind some of us absent minded readers when that is showing again? Also, would you happen to know which Marx Bros. movie first introduced Capt. Spaulding? Thanks.

    [“Duck Soup” is 6:30 p.m. Thursday. Hope to see you. It’s all I can do to keep the librarian involved from starting at 6:25, so don’t dawdle. And everyone sang “Hooray for Captain Spaulding, the African explorer!” in “Animal Crackers.” — DA]
