Old Silent Movie Locations

I used to have a sweatshirt that read "So many books, so little time."  That's how I'm beginning to feel about all sorts of things lately: so many delights to fill up my days, so little time to squeeze them all in.

So just in case you wanted to squeeze one more historical LA event in between the visit to Santa Monica's Inkwell and the movie screening (last post), here's something else going on in mid-September:

Do you like/love the films of Harold Lloyd and Charlie Chaplin? and Buster Keaton? On Saturday, Sept. 15, at 2 pm at the Los Angeles Main Library, John Bengtson will talk about the downtown Los Angeles locations that these comedians used in their silent movies. His talk is free and open to everyone, and he'll also sign & sell copies of his own book, Silent Visions, about Harold Lloyd's films (maybe he'll have his other books there as well).
