Silents in the Library: When The Clouds Roll By

1919, 80 Minutes

With live music.

Nominally a rather silly satire about various fads in 1919 America ranging from Ouija boards and diverse superstitions to crackpot psychological experiments, this energetic Douglas Fairbanks comedy - the first directorial effort of Victor Fleming, Fairbanks’s former cinematographer - is chiefly a free-form adventure.

Silents in the Library series includes the following:

  1. When The Clouds Roll By - Sunday October 30
  2. Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde  - Sunday November 6
  3. The Student Prince in Old Heidleberg - Sunday November 13
  4. Timothy’s Quest – Sunday November 20
  5. The General - Sunday November 27
