  1. Anarchistic musicals, you say? Die Dreigroschenoper has class struggle in it so it fits the bill!
  2. In Duck Soup, Groucho and the leaders of Freedonia break out into song about how they're going to mess the nation up.
  3. Press the green box that says "Quote" next to it and it will take you to a box at the bottom of the page to reply.
  4. Talk about premature celebration. As if the neo-Francoist authoritarians in Spain would allow independence!
  5. The score was made up of excerpts from Shostakovich's 4th, 5th, 8th, 10th and 11th symphonies.

  13. I have to disagree. When viewing silents I usually enjoy some kind of soundtrack to get a good feel for what is happening on screen. I do agree the music can be distracting if it is not well composed though. I saw Nosferatu on a PBS channel a couple of weeks ago and the music was just loud and obnoxious. It really took me away from what was happening on screen. My favorite silent soundtracks are Huppertz's Metropolis soundtrack and the ones Chaplin composed for his films. I also like when they rearrange classical pieces for a silent movie's soundtrack. I saw Battleship Potemkin earlier today o
