More Forgotten Dogs, a trio of silent films from the 1920s, will be featured at the Town Hall Theatre on Sunday at 4:30 p.m.

Three dogs, lesser known than Rin Tin Tin but as talented, are featured in the three films being screened.

In “Tracked” (1928), Ranger the Dog stands accused of killing sheep and must go on the lam; “The Sign of the Claw” (1926) features Peter the Great, a German Shepherd star whose career was cut short by a tragic accident; and “Sky Rider” (1928) finds Champion the Dog taking flight in an airplane drama.

Live music accompaniment will be performed by Jeff Rapsis.

Admission is free, with a donation of $5 per person suggested to help defray expenses.
