Scene from The Freshman.College…it's a new beginning. You're immersed in a new environment with new people, which means that you can be a new person, too. And that is exactly what college freshman Harold Lamb does. This provides the springboard for crazy comedy in Harold Lloyd's 1925 classic "The Freshman." Another "will he, won't he get the girl" comic vehicle for heartthrob Lloyd, this film is one of his most popular. Renowned Bay Area organ virtuoso Jerry Nagano provides a fabulous underscore, which adds "color" to this black and white "flicker" and makes the viewing experience complete.

Back by popular demand for the third year in a row, Jerry Nagano performs as part of the Smith Center Season of the Arts at Ohlone College. Nagano is well-known not only for his talent as a concert musician, but also for his expertise in accompanying silent films on the organ. Born and raised in Los Angeles, Nagano began his musical training under Gaylord Carter at age ten, one of the great silent film organists of the time. For the past twelve years Nagano has delighted audiences by performing at the Stanford Theatre in Palo Alto.
