Great old movie with an unusual soundtrack setting
The soundtrack is a live orchestral performance from UCLA and there is some inappropriate laughter during the love scenes, but despite this, I found the live audience to be good company, and a pleasing added dimension to the film. I despise canned laughter, but this was very different, and added life to a silent movie. The enthusiastic applause at the final scene was lovely and moving. Even better would be this kind of audial environment added to a silent comedy or adventure picture (e.g. a Keaton film, or the Fairbanks Thief of Baghdad).
