  1. I'm a little stunned that no one has mentioned (I believe) The Passion of Joan of Arc...I've seen at least 150 feature length silents, including pretty much all of the most highly aclaimed, and although I love quite a few of them (The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Broken Blossoms, and The Freshman would round out my top 5), I believe Joan of Arc is in a class of its own. I would go so far as to say it is one of my 5 favorite films of all time. I encourage anyone who enjoys silent films who has not seen this movie to see it ASAP...you won't be disappointed.
  2. I got the Kino version of this through Amazon.com and it runs 90 minutes.
  3. how about if I do it like this: The Passion of Joan of Arc (to be made to feel something deep and meaningful) Modern Times (to make me smile) The Grapes of Wrath (to remind me of the strength of the human spirit) Rear Window (well, coz it's just so darned good!) as you see, I'm another with an old soul born later than I should've been!
  4. Here's one I don't see being done in any thread...what are you all-time favorite film death scenes? I'll start with some of my favorites: Lillian Gish's Lucy in Broken Blossoms...it's just sooo sad! Maria Falconetti's Joan in The Passion of Joan of Arc...see the above comment King Kong in, well, King Kong (the original of course)...I'd have hated to be working street clean-up that week! Slim Pickens in Dr. Strangelove....all I can say is YEEE-HAAWWW WHOOO-HOOOO! Bonnie and Clyde in movie of same name....there must've been 20 machine guns that opened up on them for about 30 seconds...th

    Silent Favorites

    My top 10, more or less in this order, would be: 1: The Passion of Joan of Arc (one of my 10 favorite films of all time) 2: The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (hey, I took my nick from it, I must love it) 3: The Hunchback of Notre Dame (I don't know why this seems to be under-rated) 4: Broken Blossoms (Gish is soooo sad and heartbreaking) 5: Phantom of the Opera (the great Chaney again...unmasking scene is classic) 6: The Freshman (dance scene with the unfinished suit falling apart is hilarious) 7: The Gold Rush (very funny...would rank higher if not so darned sentimental) 8:
