Gary Lucas Plays "The Unholy Three"--accompanying the Tod Browning/Lon Chaney silent film with original live solo guitar score

Director: Tod Browning.
One of Tod Browning and Lon Chaneys greatest films, this 1925 silent classic was remade with Chaney in a sound version--but this original surpasses it by far, especially with the dark, suspenseful music master guitarist/composer Gary Lucas ("The Thinking Man's Guitar Hero") coaxes out of his guitar. Three carnival mugs, a strongman (Victor McGlagen), a "baby" (Harry Earles) and a ventriloquist (Lon Chaney) join forces to create a criminal gang that robs and terrorizes a community until finally brought to justice. A thriller from beginning to end, enhanced y Lucas' live solo guitar score: http://garylucas.com/www/unholy

Gary Lucas Plays "The Golem" (1920) -- Gary Lucas accompanies the film live with his original solo guitar score

Director: Paul Wegener and Carl Boese.
I have performed with this classic horror/fantasy film--the best version of the Golem legend ever made--in our 20 countries round the world since debuting my live score (in collaboration with composer Walter Horn) at the Museum of th Moving Image in Astoria NY in 1989. The film concerns the actual historical Rabbi Jehudah Loew, who Jewish legend has it fashioned a man out of clay and brought him to life through cabbalistic magic to protect the Jewish Community of 16th century Prague from annihilation. A stunningly beautiful, little seen film!
