SUMMARY
Directed by Christopher Annino, "Silent Times" is a Roaring-Twenties escapade set in a small New England town. The story centers on Oliver Henry III (played by Westerly native Geoff Blanchette), a small-time crook turned vaudeville theater owner. From humble beginnings in England, he immigrates to the US in search of happiness and fast cash. He becomes acquainted with people from all walks of life, from burlesque performers, mimes, hobos to classy flapper girls, as his fortunes rise and his life spins ever more out of control. The film is a loving homage to the silent films of the 1920s and 30s, and features a wide cast of characters based on archetypes and personalities common in those films, such as Charlie Chaplin, Marinka The Amazon, Thomas Inch, Annie Oakley, Buster Keaton, Orson Wells, Keystone Cops, Gypsy Rose Lee and many more. Much of the comedy was inspired by Benny Hill and Monty Python. Notably, it is the first silent feature film of its kind in 80 years, and the film speed was sped up to match with 1920's film speed. The film features talent drawn from Mystic, New London, and Westerly. Some notable talent featured in the film is WWE Legend Brian Blair, Olga Kurkulina star of "Kick Ass 2," Queen of the Paranormal Kadrolsha Ona Carole, Ric Silver the creator of the "Electric Slide" dance, and WWE Legend Ron Bass. The film highlights American Burlesque and Vaudeville both at their peaks.. The film highlights American Burlesque and Vaudeville both at their peaks. Written By Jill Blanchette  Less
