A serial killer is on the loose in London and the city is on high alert. Meanwhile, the mysterious new lodger at the home of Mr and Mrs Bunting starts to attract suspicion. Could he be the man police are hunting for? The second Yorkshire Silent Film Festival gets off to a flying start at Sheffield's finest old cinema, the beautiful Abbeydale Picture House. To make the evening really special, we're thrilled to announce that the film will be accompanied by the world premiere performance of Neil Brand's new score, performed live by Orchestra of St Paul's.
The festival's opening weekend at the Abbeydale Picture House continues on Saturday 6 May with seven films including another chance to see Ivor Novello, this time in the rarely-screened and deeply odd fantasy-science-fiction-romance Man Without Desire, the Soviet comedy Girl With a Hat Box, Buster Keaton in The Cameraman and Greta Garbo in the lavish Hollywood drama Flesh and the Devil.
