Always known for their innovative ways of presenting music, the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra this Sunday will continue that theme on a variation with silence. Well, silence as in accompanying two silent films. The 1928-comedy The Cameraman follows Buster Keaton as he sets out to impress a pretty office worker at MGM Newsreels by trading in his tintype operation for a movie camera to compete with the big boys. Also to be shown is Walt Disney’s Alice’s Wild West Show (1924), a short black and white silent film combines live action with animation. In it, Alice puts on a show for the neighborhood kids of her wild west adventures. Everything goes well until the local bully, Tubby O’Brien, shows up...
