Featuring Harold LLoyd’s “Hot Water”
R. Jelani Eddington, one of the most prominent and sought-after artists on the concert circuit will be presenting the music for the “silent movie” “Hot Water”, starring Harold Lloyd on Friday, February 10th, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. at Forrest Burdette Memorial United Methodist Church in Hurricane.
Jelani performed in most of the major concert venues throughout the United States, has toured extensively abroad, and has received numerous awards and recognitions.
“Hot Water” is a 1924 silent film featuring three episodes in the life of Hubby (Lloyd) as he struggles with domestic life with Wifey (Jobyna Ralston) and his in-laws. The film was popular at the box office and grossed $1,350,000, an excellent return for a film of this period.
Lloyd ranks alongside Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton as one of the most popular and influential film comedians of the silent film era. Lloyd made nearly 200 comedy films, both silent and “talkies”, between 1914 and 1947.
Eddington will be returning for his second performance on the world-class Harrah Symphonic Organ and it is expected to be outstanding.
Admission is $10.00 for adults, students and children free.
