The Oklahoma History Center is pleased to announce the first Kilgen theater organ performance of 2022, featuring widely recognized organist Clark Wilson. He will provide the accompanying music and sound effects to the Harold Lloyd silent film Girl Shy (1924). The performance will be Monday, January 24, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 for Oklahoma Historical Society members and $20 for nonmembers, and may be reserved by calling 405-522-0765. Doors will open at 6 p.m. and seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. The Oklahoma History Center is located at 800 Nazih Zuhdi Drive in Oklahoma City.
Silent movie icon Harold Lloyd, the star of Girl Shy, was recognized not only for his daredevil talents but also for his trademark horn-rimmed glasses. Of all the silent film comedians, Lloyd was the most profitable. His films out-grossed the movies of both Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton, and he made more films than Chaplin and Keaton combined.
In his previous performance at the Oklahoma History Center in October 2017, Wilson played two sold-out concerts accompanying the silent film classic Nosferatu. A resident of Ohio, Wilson began his musical training at age nine and has received hundreds of accolades and awards in the course of his career.
