Secrets of the Night

Secrets of the Night film screening, March 2nd

Mark your calendars!

The University of Toronto Libraries Media Commons Archives Virtual Event Series continues on March 2, 2021 from 6:00-7:30 pm. Join us for a free screening of their rediscovered lost silent film “Secrets of the Night” (1924), followed by a panel discussion. 

Directed by Herbert Blaché, this murder mystery-melodrama-comedy boasts an impressive cast led by James Kirkwood, Madge Bellamy, and ZaSu Pitts. Produced by Universal-Jewel, and complete with its original credits and ending, “Secrets of the Night” was found in a collection of silent films donated to the archives by Richard and Wayne Scott in 2016.

Directly following the screening Assistant Media Archivist Christina Stewart will moderate a panel discussion with collection donors, Richard and Wayne Scott, and the film’s piano accompanist Jordan Klapman.
