"Best of the Best"

Back by rip-roaring, raucous popular (especially with the 4th grade!) demand. A laugh-filled look at comedy on the silver screen. Fourth-grade dad Jeff Couchman will show clips (old favorites and requests) from the films of Buster Keaton, Charlie Chaplin, the Marx Brothers, the Three Stooges, and others. Kids will learn who these clowns were and glimpse some great moments in film history.
