Zorn/Colbert genius

In re: Genius

Anthology Film archivist Andrew Lampert reports that the musician John Zorn is game to play accompaniment for three obscure silent shorts by the Belgian cineaste Charles Dekeukeleire: Combat de boxe (1927), Impatience (1928), and Histoire de détective (1929).

Until such a time as that collaboration happens, we can satisfy ourselves momentarily with this clip from South Carolina's favorite and native son.
