Silent movies were never truly silent. In their heyday they unspooled with a score and sound effects, courtesy of an on-site piano player. Pianist Ethan Uslan slips easily from juke joint stride to classical pieces, as he accompanies a selection of shorts. We caught Uslan last summer, providing a score to the 1928 Harold Lloyd comedy Speedy. Lloyd’s appeal is hard to fathom today, but Speedy came alive because of Uslan’s deft work on the ivories.
