Overview

Presented by Irish Arts Center and Irish Film Institute
Directed by Sidney Olcott
1923, USA, 110 minutes

Irish Film Institute brings a cine-concert of Sidney Olcott’s 1923 silent film, Little Old New York, to IAC with live musical accompaniment by pianist Morgan Cooke, one of Ireland's leading film accompanists.

An invaluable addition to the catalogue of films made for and about the Irish emigrant population, Little Old New York is a delightful comedy about a young Irish girl (Marion Davies) who comes to America disguised as a boy in order to claim a fortune left to her late brother. Directed by Olcott (formerly of Kalem Films 1910 – 1915) and lavishly produced by newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst (with whom Davies was romantically involved), the film was a huge box office success.



Little Old New York was recently acquired by the IFI Irish Film Archive from the Library of Congress in Washington with the support of The Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation.
