Dustin Hoffman… loves those silents!
Academy Award-winning actor Dustin Hoffman is an enthusiastic fan of silent films, and he’s proving his support this weekend by serving as the honorary chairman of the 21st Annual Silent Film Gala. In a darkened theater, with the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra playing the score, the 1928 classic film, The Cameraman starring Buster Keaton, will be screened, along with Walt Disney’s rare silent short, Alice’s Wild West Show, from 1924. Hoffman, an actor of countless singular performances, explains why he’s such a fan of the founding film medium.
The 21st Annual Silent Film Gala is a ticketed event taking place Sunday, May 23 at 6:30 pm at UCLA’s Royce Hall.
