  1. I agree totally. I got hooked on the Boston **** serials listening to old time radio and now it's great to see some old time classic movies! Hope these movies go on a while...
  2. I'm not a huge fan of silents, although I do love anything with Lon Chaney. A couple of years ago, I first saw "The Unknown" and "Laugh, Clown, Laugh" and I was enthralled. There's another movie I like, I think it's called He Who Gets Slapped, or something to that effect. The biggest issue I have with the silents on TCM is that I usually have the TV on to check out the movie, just to see if I'm going to like it, I start watching the movie and I either get unexpectedly involved in something or I get distracted and so I miss the subtitles and there goes the movie!
  3. I don't find the pre-code films disappointing. I find them quite smart in their handling of hot topics. I just watched two pre-code films on DVD: Waterloo Bridge with Mae Clarke (1931) and Red Headed Woman with Jean Harlow (1932) and for me the sauciness of the subject matter was due more to sexual nuance instead of bold, "in your face" presentation, especially in Waterloo Bridge--Red Headed Woman was a bit more blatant.
