Come on Over

A Silent Film Concert Tour


In partnership
with the Irish Film Institute Dublin/ IFI International and the Embassy of Ireland, a film concert tour with pianist Elaine Loebenstein.

TRAILER



Presenting a silent film acquired from the Film Department of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

Come on Over, a lively comedy of errors, is an Irish emigrant tale of a fiery young woman (Colleen Moore) who follows her sweetheart from Lisdoonvarna to New York.

Following a series of misunderstandings with society dames, a formidable landlady (Cork-born Kate Price), drunken layabouts and Irish cops she is reunited with her beloved at a lively New York céilidh.

Echoing the plot of the much more recent Oscar-nominated film Brooklyn, it serves as a silent-era depiction of the Irish in America at a time when emigration out of Ireland was not just commonplace, but endemic by necessity.
