Wurlitza presents: A Cottage on Dartmoor (PG)

Saturday 23rd November 2019

Dir. Anthony Asquith, UK, 1929, 87 mins. Cast. Norah Baring, Uno Henning.

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.
