The Maltese Bulldog

Short Film

The Yale Symphony Orchestra’s annual Halloween Show is one of Yale’s most time-honored, irreverent, and popular traditions. Nearly 3,000 students and faculty members gather at midnight on Halloween night in the university’s largest concert hall to watch a student-produced silent film, whose music is performed live by the YSO.  The 2010 entry, “The Maltese Bulldog”, was a campus-wide sensation, featuring a performance by James Franco, and is still considered by many to be the best ever.
