Silent film, `Big Stakes,' screening at Movie Museum

April 27, 2004|By SUN STAFF

Tomorrow's entry in the Baltimore Movie Museum's silent film series is an oddity from 1922: Clifford S. Elfelt's little-seen Big Stakes, about a Texas man who goes on a failed romantic quest in Mexico, then returns to find the Ku Klux Klan accusing his supposedly all-American blond gal of racial impurity.

The Boston group Devil Music Ensemble will perform its original country/western score live.

The program begins with a vintage short at 8 p.m. at Creative Alliance at the Patterson (3134 Eastern Ave). Admission is $10, with free popcorn for members.
