Wurlitza presents: A Cottage on Dartmoor (PG)
We are very excited to welcome back Cornish band Wurlitza who will be playing a live score to a screening of Anthony Asquith’s rarely seen silent classic, A Cottage on Dartmoor. Said to “Out-Hitchcock Hitchcock”, Asquith’s film uses every cinematic technical trick available to create a story of jealousy and suspense. It is a snapshot on the rise of early talking films, cleverly woven into a plot that involves an escaped convict, a love triangle and, naturally, hairdressing. Starring Swedish actor Uno Henning as Joe, we follow his escape from Dartmoor Prison and through a series of flashbacks, his interactions with Sally (Norah Baring) and Harry (Hans Adalbert Schlettow).
Repertoire for the soundtrack of A Cottage on Dartmoor includes music by Villa Lobos, Serge Gainsbourg, Right Said Fred, Clearwater Credence Revival, Buddy Holly, Chopin and Louis Armstrong.
Full price £12. Concession £10 for Friends of PAC, OAP, students, underwaged, Under 25, PCA staff and students.
