The Wizard of Oz Silent Movie

The Wizard of Oz (1925) Black & White Silent Movie Event
FREE ADMISSION July 29th at 3 p.m.
Live organ accompaniment provided in the theatre by Brian Tanaka!
This is a comedy version that strays a great deal from the original story. It features an early performance of Oliver Hardy, one half of the Laurel & Hardy duo that formed several years later.

Brian Tanaka is Organist at Grace Presbyterian Church, Temple, and works full-time at REAL Star Property Management. He enjoys continuing to study organ in Austin with Gregory Eaton. Last December, Brian was organist for Grace Presbyterian Church and First United Methodist Church’s, “A Rutter Christmas” with Gloria! by John Rutter. Most recently, Brian was Music Director/Conductor for Temple Civic Theatre’s, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. Brian enjoys serving as a board member for the Temple Symphony Orchestra. While in school, Brian studied economics and music, focusing on piano performance and jazz drumming.

About the Movie:
A Toymaker tells a bizarre story about how the Land of Oz was ruled by Prince Kynd, but he was overthrown by Prime Minister Kruel. Dorothy learns from Aunt Em that fat, cruel Uncle Henry is not her uncle, and gives her a note due on her eighteenth birthday, which reveals she is actually Princess Dorothea of Oz, and is supposed to marry Prince Kynd. She, Uncle Henry , and two farmhands are swept to Oz by a tornado. Snowball, a black farmhand soon joins them after a lightning bolt chases him into the sky. They land in Oz, where the farmhands try to avoid capture. Semon becomes a scarecrow, Hardy briefly disguises himself as a Tin Woodman, and Snowball is given a Lion suit by the Wizard, which he uses to scare the Pumperdink guards.
