Love, Life and Laughter opened to some impressive, if reserved reviews. Nevertheless, she rightly predicted it would be a hit. Unfortunately, Love, Life and Laughter soon became one of the great casualties of the silent era. So when a copy was discovered in the Netherlands in , legions of Balfour fans, who had precious few chances to see her on screen, celebrated. And now the film has been restored by specialists at the BFI Archive and will have its world premiere at the London film festival in October, with live musical accompaniment by Meg Morley , the acclaimed jazz composer and pianist.
Morley is also an expert in the art of improvising for silent cinema, and although, of course, this film has no soundtrack, its subject matter means that music takes on a vast importance. Not surprisingly, she was once thought to be the feather in the cap of our national film industry.
She led a successful film franchise, playing a cockney flower-girl called Squibs, acted for Alfred Hitchcock in his silent film Champagne and was popular with audiences and directors all over Europe.
However, she found it hard to shake her cockney typecasting and her career faltered in the sound era. So what can we expect from Love, Life and Laughter? She is constantly in motion, eyes twinkling and limbs snapping: a gamine with get-up-and-go. But when I arrived I was surprised to find it was trees, just like Japan.

She got back on track immediately with four birdies over her next five holes, capped with one more at the 15th, but missed her short birdie attempt at 18 to leave her one shot back. Her final-round 65 was low round of the day and tied the low round of the tournament.

I was trying to strike out a lot of people. I think in the first two innings that got me in trouble. But after that I settled down. Nowadays, Hernandez often lacks command and the consistent putaway pitch, and it has haunted him.
But he came up with three of them — whiffing Sean Murphy for the second out in the second, Chad Pinder to end the third, and Seth Brown for the second out in the fifth. The eruption of noise after each was visceral — and Hernandez immediately pointed to the Court after the first two. Everyone got what they came for.
But real life is not a fairy tale, and Hernandez was touched for three runs in the first two innings, including a two-run homer by Matt Chapman. But he battled with all his will, and avoided the blowout that often lurked, and would have been the ultimate letdown. When Felix took the mound in the sixth inning, his teammates allowing him to go out alone to milk the ovation, he trailed and was nearing pitches.
The end was approaching, and the sense of both foreboding and something akin to sorrow was palpable. The leadoff hitter, Robbie Grossman, flied out to center.

Out of the dugout came manager Scott Servais to get Hernandez. Servais never got to see that, unlike his managerial predecessors, but his reverence was well-expressed before and after the game. I was trying to strike out the last guy. But it was hard because I saw my teammates out there.
It was hard not to cry.
