A COUPLE OF DOWN AND OUTS (U) - 1923 UK 68 min - introduced by Sir Sydney Samuelson

Director: Walter Summers
Stars: Edna Best, Rex Davis, George Foley

Homeless and workless on his return from the front, a decorated corporal rescues one of his wartime horses from imminent slaughter, knocking over a police sergeant while escaping. A young woman takes pity on the desperate pair, and romance ensues. Davis was awarded the Military Cross for his WWI service, while Best went on to Broadway stardom. This charming picture was created by the GB Samuelson studio, and recently restored with a recorded score by John Sweeney. We are delighted that this screening will be introduced by the producerís son, former Bafta chairman Sir Sydney Samuelson.
