British Silent Film Festival

The Oyster Princess U

Thu 12 Sep, 1.30pm

From the playful imagination of one of silent film’s geniuses comes a delightful comedy classic. The Oyster Princess tells of the spoiled and demanding Ossi Quaker, heiress to her father’s vast oyster fortune who insists upon finding- and marrying- a real-life prince charming.

Chaos, confusion and mistaken identity reign until Ossi finally stumbles on Prince Nucki and they swiftly fall in love after a serendipitous meeting at a ‘cure for alcoholics’ gathering. A delightful and biting satire on the shallow desires of the upper classes, The Oyster Princess is an utterly intoxicating comedy of errors. “Down with dipsomania!”
