AIR DATE: October 4, 2013

Cellist Elizabeth Marshall got a personalized introduction to silent films.

She befriended two senior citizens, both retired symphony musicians. As a hobby they would watch silent films together, and debate which bit of classical music ought to serve as score for each scene.

Marshall has translated that pastime into "Everything & Nothing," an evening of nine silent film shorts accompanied by live music.

Pardue and Marshall discuss the charm of the early films, which are often dismissed as crude or slapstick.

GUESTS

Elizabeth Marshall, cellist

David Pardue, director of "Everything & Nothing"
