Square Shoulders and The Big Town
 

SQUARE SHOULDERS starring Louis Wolheim and Junior Coghlan. Tad is a young boy who wants to go to military school so he can grow up to be a great soldier, just like his dad. Little does he suspect that Slag (Wolheim), a bum and a thief, is actually his father. Slag, not wanting to reveal his true identity and thus destroy Tad's belief in his father as a war hero, robs a factory for the money to send his son to a fancy military academy. I order to stay close to Tad, he takes on a job at the academy's stable. This is a truly wonderful film with elements of comedy and drama. It's a moving tribute to the love between father and son. This film is presented with the original music and effects score as it was when released in 1929.

THE BIG TOWN starring Our Gang. This is a very rare and unusual early entry from the Our Gang series. After accidentally burning down a neighbor's barn and getting trapped on a freight train, the gang find themselves in New York City. They decide to see the sights and the film shows many of the city's landmarks including the Statue of Liberty and the Brooklyn Bridge. After taking over a city bus for a wild drive through the streets, the police finally catch up with them and send them home. The return journey, this time on a passenger train, gives the gang a nice opportunity to cause mayhem for their fellow passengers!
