This Czechoslovakian silent comedy ‘An Old Gangster Molls’ stars Anny Ondra, who later became one of Hitchcock’s leads in his classic silent thriller ‘Blackmail’ (1929).

She plays alongside Czech greats like Vlasta Burian and Jan W. Speerger in this screwball comedy about a factory owner and his uncle, who swap their identities and invent incredible stories to escape marriage in this classic filled with physical comedy and exquisitely observed situational humour.

With an introduction from comedian and presenter Lucy Porter and live accompaniment by John Sweeney on the piano and Frank Bockius on percussion.
