  1. Silent Film Ideas

    Greetings All, I work in small theater and I have decided that I want expose more people to silent films. I have been given the green light for my project and while I have many thoughts of my own I was wondering what silent film would you play first to really grab people to spark an interest so they may return for future screenings? Any input would be welcome. CHEERS! BombayBob
  2. Exactly what it says on the tin. What films would you like TCM to schedule for this program? I'd like some more foreign films, like the excellent French production of Michael Strogoff (1926). There's a film that definitely needs rediscovery, as it has all the elements of a crowd-pleaser.
  3. Lost Silents?

    There are so many lost films, it is such a shame that many of these unique pieces of art have been lost! I am always reading about a lost film that sounds so good and wish that I could see it. What lost silents would you most like to see? Here's my top 3: 1. The Big Little Person (1919) so sad that I will probably never see this one, it sounds so interesting. 2. Uncharted Seas (1921) I would love to see it. Who knows, maybe it will turn up somewhere like Beyond the Rocks (1922) did . 3. The Glimpses of the Moon (1923) What are some that you would love to be discovered?
  4. Way Down East (1920)

    Way Down East (1920) is one of Lillian Gish's best in my opinion, her acting was really superb. It did surprise me though, its theme was very scandalous and some of the intertitles were a little shocking! Lillian's character was very likeable, it was not hard to sympathize with her situation. Before I knew it, I was entranced by the story and the committed performance by the actors. They really did give it their all on this picture, during the famous icy river scene, Lillian Gish was actually harmed; one of her hands and her hair trailed in the water as she floated down a real river towards a small waterfall. Her hair froze, and for the rest of her life, she suffered from nerve damage in her fingers (due to the icy water). It is amazing to me how hard these people worked to create this masterpiece. Has anyone seen this one?
  5. Test your classic film chops! I recently bought a scrapbook filled with pictures and notes of movie stars from the Silent Era-1930s. Trying to identify the following:
