The Sin of Harold Diddlebock (aka Mad Wednesday, 1947) Tuesday, April 14th @ 7 PM

Preston Sturges is still revered as one of the greatest and influential writers and directors of all time.SinofHaroldScreeningArtPRINT  His collaboration with Howard Hughes, and retired silent film star Harold Lloyd, The Sin of Harold Diddlebock, is a true forgotten classic. It only played on screens briefly in 1947 and was a flop before it was pulled.  Hughes re-edited it and released it again in 1951 as Mad Wednesday.  It was a flop once again. It’s the ultimate tale of a lost night of adventure, like a post-war The Hangover with more social commentary. Harold Lloyd sends up his own great career which saw him make more movies than either Charlie Chaplin or Buster Keaton in the silent era.  Join us for this brilliant lost classic, free admission at the Darkside Cinema.
