The Tramp finds work and the girl of his dreams at a circus.
Their Purple Moment (1928)
Stan and Ollie hold out money from their paychecks from their shrewish wives so they can enjoy a night out on the town... with predictable results.
Leaving the dentist's office, where Hardy's teeth have been extracted by mistake, the boys, still under the influence of laughing gas, meet up with a traffic cop (Kennedy) and cause a huge traffic jam.
With the police hot on their trail, Stan and Ollie attempt to change clothes in their getaway car, only to find themselves struggling to balance atop the girders of an unfinished skyscraper. Will they return to ground level in one piece?
Dean Mora was born and raised in Los Angeles; his interest in pre-WWII America was forged early on as a child (at 11 he went to see the motion picture “The Sting” and was instantly hooked). Shortly after receiving his Bachelor of Music degree at CSU Northridge, Dean was offered the job of accompanying silent films at the Silent Movie Theatre in Hollywood. At this time Dean studied theatre organ with the legendary Gaylord Carter, learning all the tricks and techniques needed to effectively accompany a silent film. Dean played every week at the Silent Movie Theatre for 6 years, accompanying over 200 movies. He also played for screenings attended by silent films stars such as Buddy Rogers, Anita Page, Lina Basquette, and Gilbert Roland, in addition to contemporary stars such as Johnny Depp, Robert Downey Jr., Leonard DiCaprio, Brendan Fraser, and John Candy. Since then, Dean has performed in other venues such as the Orpheum Theatre (Los Angeles), Copley Hall (San Diego), Fox Theatre (Hanford CA, Visalia CA, and Bakersfield CA), and the Nethercutt Museum (Sylmar, CA). In addition, he has also performed at film festivals in various locales, including The Roger Ebert Film Festival in Champaign, IL, the UCLA Film Archives Series, The Motion Picture Arts & Sciences Academy in Beverly Hills, CA, and the Silent Movie Film Festival in Osaka, Japan. He currently resides in Sacramento with his wife Adrian and their son Hamilton (born Nov. 2016)
