With Dr Harriet Fields and Chris Serle

Dir: D.W Griffith US 104mins U


The irascible and immensely talented W.C Fields stars alongside silent film darling Carol Dempster as they form a sort of father/daughter relationship in ‘Sally of the Sawdust’. When her circus mother dies, young Sally (Dempster) is raised by Professor McGargle (Fields), a juggler and small-time con man. McGargle trains Sally to dance for his opening act, and after their success, the pair join a carnival in this rare D.W Griffith comedy. Putting these two incredible actors together in the circus is bound to make for a great comedy. With an introduction from presenter Chris Serle and a personal message from Dr Harriet Fields (Fields’ granddaughter). With live piano accompaniment by John Sweeney.
