The Farmer’s Wife

(U) – 1928 Silent film with live piano – 1hr 40m

Jameson Thomas, Lillian Hall-Davies, Gordon Harker

Farmer Sweetland is recently widowed, and his first wife made him promise that he would marry again after her death. Determined to follow her wishes, the farmer makes a list of suitable candidates and proceeds to woo them, one by one, with disastrous results – finding love a second time is not as easy as he expected. A rural romantic comedy from the Master of Suspense might seem unlikely, but this beautifully-acted silent film is one of Alfred Hitchcock’s most poignant and enjoyable tales. Pianist Jonny Best will bring it to life with a live, improvised accompaniment.

LEYBURN ARTS AND COMMUNITY CENTRE is once again delighted to be part of the Yorkshire Silent Film Festival which will be taking place between 12 and 17 October.
All tickets £12 – to be pre-booked through our Administrator on 01969 624510 (Monday to Friday 1pm-4pm) or direct through our website.
