Silent films every Sunday in September! Harold Lloyd's biggest box-office hit was this silent comedy gem, featuring the befuddled everyman at his eager best as a new college student. Though he dreams of being a big man on campus, the freshman's careful plans inevitably go hilariously awry, be it on the football field or at the Fall Frolic. But he gets a climactic chance to prove his mettle-and impress the sweet girl he loves-in one of the most famous sports sequences ever filmed. This crowd-pleaser is a gleeful showcase for Lloyd's slapstick brilliance and incandescent charm, and it is accompanied here by a new orchestral score by Carl Davis.

Silent films every Sunday in September! With its stunning camerawork and striking compositions, Carl Th. Dreyer'sThe Passion of Joan of Arc convinced the world that movies could be art. Renée Falconetti gives one of the greatest performances ever recorded on film, as the young maiden who died for God and France. Long thought to have been lost to fire, the original version was miraculously found in perfect condition in 1981-in a Norwegian mental institution. Criterion is proud to present this milestone of silent cinema in a new special edition featuring composer Richard Einhorn's Voices of Light, an original opera/oratorio inspired by the film.

Silent films every Sunday in September!

In the pre-Civil War South, a bumbling young man goes to claim his family estate, meets a pretty girl en route -- and her clan -- who've been involved in a feud with his own family for decades. Meticulously re-created period settings and brilliant physical gags abound in Keaton's third feature.
