   Aurora Repertory Theatre of Nevada is producing a silent film festival in honor of the 100th anniversary of Edna Purviance’s noted movie career. Edna was born in Paradise Valley, Nevada and grew up in Lovelock, Nevada. She was a pioneer of the motion picture industry and appeared in 34 Chaplin productions.

   In addition to the award winning The Kid, The Tramp, and The Vagabond, the festival will feature seven additional Charlie Chaplin films co-starring Edna including her only lead role in the controversial Chaplin-directed A Woman of Paris.
