A SILENT film with 20s comedy actress Bebe Daniels as a hypochondriac heiress who tangles with bootleggers will come with its own live music soundtrack at Eden Court on July 16.

The 1928 film Feel My Pulse will be screened with live music played by Forrester Pyke, who is well-known for composing, playing and improvising music for silent films.

In the past he’s created and performed music for movies such as Nosferatu, Metropolis, The General and The Gold Rush for The Edinburgh International Film Festival, The Filmhouse Edinburgh, Bo’ness Hippodrome Silent Cinema Festival and Glasgow Film Theatre.

Feel My Pulse is 63 minutes of classic roaring 20s American comedy with a slapstick finale, after an heiress who is a hypochondriac heads off for a rest cure when she inherits an island sanitorium.

But she finds more than she bargained for – including adventure and romance – as she discovers the place has become a hideout for bootleggers. The film also stars William Powell – best-known for The Thin Man series based on the Dashiell Hammett novels and co-starring Myrna Loy.

Feel My Pulse with live music accompaniment from Forrester Pyke is at Eden Eourt Cinema on Wednesday, July 16 at 7.15pm. To book tickets online visit www.eden-court.co.uk or call box office on 01463 234234
