Lucky Star LIVE

6pm / Fri 11 November / Studio Cinema

Dir: Frank Borzage / USA / 1929 / 1h 30mins

Cast: Janet Gaynor, Charles Farrell, Guinn ‘Big Boy’ Williams

Polish-born, Glasgow based singer songwriter Ela Orleans performs a beautiful live soundtrack to this charming and romantic silent melodrama. Janet Gaynor and Charles Farrell were a hugely popular screen team from the late silent era. In Lucky Star they play lovers separated by WWI, when tragic events test their love to the limits. Described as a ‘movie for your ears’, this hypnotic and ethereal composition deserves to be experienced live.


The 2016 festival has been and gone.
