I watched Nosferatu (1922) for the first time yesterday. I was a little surprised, it was not what I expected; I'd heard a lot about it, and it was very different from what I imagined. I am often surprised by silent movies, either it will end in a way I didn't expect, or it will be something entirely unexpected. For example, Male and Female (1919) was not at all like I thought it would be, the ending came about in a way I didn't think of (trying not to give anything away for those who haven't seen it). Cobra (1925) was another that had an unexpected turn of events a the end; I did not expect a star like Valentino to end like that, but I'm glad he did, it was the perfect ending for that film.
What silent movies have surprised you? This can be a surprising scene, ending, dialogue, or a movie that turned out nothing like how you thought it would!
