1st Annual
Kansas Silent Film Festival

White Concert Hall,
Washburn University
Topeka, Kansas

A ll films were accompanied by Marvin Faulwell except for the Douglas Fairbanks film, Wild and Woolly, accompanied on piano by film historian John Tibbetts. Our first schedule was packed with silent film "standards" and audience reaction was enthusiastic. Our only glitch that year was the Fairbanks film from the Museum of Modern Art just wouldn't work right. It's the only time in the festival's history that a film couldn't be shown all the way through. Shows ran from 9am to 7pm without breaks.

A Trip to the Moon (1902)
