This comment is a bit off-topic, but Leonard Maltin has a nice article about the San Francisco Silent Film Festival and a few of the films featured there this year:

Among the films mentioned is a restored version of the Lubitsch film Rosita (1923) featuring Mary Pickford.  I would encourage you to follow the link in the article which takes you to a video presented by Dave Kehr from the Museum of Modern Art that talks about silent films and shows several samples from the restored film.  The difference between the source material and the final restoration is stunning.

I really hope and pray that some day TCM is able to show this newly restored Rosita on Silent Sunday Nights.
