Silent Clowns Film Series: FILM: You'd Be Surprised (1926)
The Silent Clowns Film Series is back and dedicated to silent era film star, Raymond Griffith, a star whom Walter Kerr described as "natty, lithe (and) un-mugging."
Today, view Griffith in You'd Be Surprised (1926) as the police coroner who's called in to solve the murder of an important district attorney. Setting the stage for our feature is The Sleeping Porch ('29), an early talkie two-reeler he made for producer Al Christie that gives a rare illustration of his speaking voice.
