TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Charlie Chaplin is among the classic movie stars who will be featured during the 17th annual Kansas Silent Film Festival.

The free festival takes place Feb. 22 and 23 in White Concert Hall at Washburn University in Topeka.

Several short Keystone comedies produced by Max Sennett will be featured. Kansas City film historian Denise Morrison will provide introductions for the films and give an overview of the artists and the era of the silent films.

Some films will be shown on 16mm film, while others may be projected digitally, due to the rarity of actual film material.

Musical accompaniments will be provided mostly by organists or a five-piece chamber ensemble.
