$10 Silent Film Comedy Night – The Show Off (1926)
In this silent feature, Aubrey (Ford Sterling) is a born braggart, forever boasting of fortunes he doesn’t have. Everyone can see right through him — everyone except the mooning girl next door, Amy (Lois Wilson). The two marry, but Aubrey struggles to pay the bills, so he leans on her family. Her brother, the struggling inventor Joe (Gregory Kelly), is Aubrey’s opposite: gifted and humble. When the family bankrolls Joe’s latest invention, Aubrey intervenes. Will he save the day, or ruin it?
Live accompaniment provided by Chicagoland’s premiere organist Jay Warren!
