The Gold Rush
directed by Charlie Chaplin (1925)

Organ improvisations remarkably complement the era of silent cinema, breathing new and fresh dimensions into films from a century ago. But the idea is almost as old as the history of cinematography itself. 

 

The first projection with the use of organs took place in 1908 at the Alcazar Theater in Chicago. Over the following two decades, silent cinema accompanied by a lone orchestra placed behind the screen triumphed, until the invention and popularization of sound films in the late 1930s and 1940s. 

 

Specially crafted instruments even gained their own name - "film" or "theatre" organs. What couldn't they do! Among the sound effects they could mimic were snoring, laughter, and even... kisses. Organs could cry out revenge, feverishly claw, sob with fervent sorrow, sigh with love, groan with tormenting conscience, cry like a child, giggle like a toddler, and... bark like a dog.
