See this film: Girl Shy [with live musical accompaniment] @ the Somerville Theatre

Maybe today's rom coms would be better off if they just hushed a bit and aspired to the visual wit of classic silent comedies like Harold Lloyd's Girl Shy (1924). In it Lloyd plays the title shy guy who tries to compensate for his ineptitude with women by writing a macho dating book. But words turn to action when he must stop the wedding of the woman he fancies and engages in one of the most inventive, dazzling, and hilarious chases in cinema. It screens with a live music accompaniment from Jeff Rapsis.

Somerville Theatre, 55 Davis Square, Somerville :: Thursday, February 14 @ 7:30 pm :: $15 :: 617.625.5700 or
