Ben Model, one of the leading silent film accompanists in the country, will enrich Sherlock Holmes
(1922) with his incredible musical talent. In this early trip to 221B Baker Street, screen legend John Barrymore (Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
, Grand Hotel
) stars as the inestimable Holmes. Long thought lost, a single print of this silent classic was rediscovered in the 1970s and then restored, with curators splicing in extra material frame-by-frame. Film fans will note the screen debut of a young William Powell, later star of the Thin Man
series. Eighty years after its premiere, experience the movie as it was originally intended: on a giant screen in a gorgeous theatre, listening to the strains of expertly played, live musical accompaniment. Under these conditions, few movies are as moving!
