"You're not quite a man yet. You're only tol'able." David (Richard Barthelmess) is tired of being the youngest in his family, tired of not being able to prove that he's a man. This rural adaptation of the David and Goliath tale chronicles the hero's passage into adulthood as he confronts three crooks looking for trouble. This coming-of-age tale is one of the cornerstones of silent film. Who better to join us for this event than special guest Fritzi Kramer, silent film expert and creator of the website Movies Silently

Not rated, 95 min.
