SEND IN THE CLOWN

The first complete film produced by MGM, Swedish director Victor Seastrom’s 1924 silent masterpiece He Who Gets Slapped,wowed critics and audiences alike upon its 1924 release. It also made a star of Lon Chaney, who magnificently played its title character, a former scientist who loses both his research and his wife to a sleazy one-percenter and subsequently condemns himself to a life of ritual humiliation as a circus masochist. The Alloy Orchestra – Terry Donahue, Ken Winokur, and Roger Miller – have created another innovative keyboards-and-percussion score for this weird, troubling film that also features future “queen of MGM” Norma Shearer as “Consuelo.” The debonair Django Reinhardt-inspired guitarist Stephan Wrembel entertains at Celebrate Brooklyn! until the sun goes down.
