  1. Hepburn ad nauseum...... no silents with exception of Novarro.
  2. INTOLERANCE is a masterpiece. It's two main arcs, the modern story and the Babylonian story, are outstanding pieces of filmmaking and were re-leased in 1919 as standalone films. The modern story with the mother and the "do-gooders" is a harrowing piece of social commentary with a great performance by Mae Marsh. It is also a superb early (if not the first) use of cross-cutting between two story elements in the execution of the boy (Robert Harron). The Babylonian arc boasts one of the all-time greatest movie sets ever built and also boasts a star-making role (and one of the earliest feminist her
  3. Silent film IS the history of film. There's basically NO part of film today that doesn't trace its history to silent films.
  4. Weird..... it's always worked before to bypass the size limit thing.....
  5. I get a message saying what I'm posting is over the limit. When I try to use a link from postimages (which used to work) all that posts is the link and not the picture. [url=https://postimages.org/][img]https://i.postimg.cc/52G8MKCF/LUCY.jpg[/img][/url]
  6. so now adding fotos doesn't work anymore AGAIN
  7. Marion Davies and William Davies in Show People (1928). Two of MGM's top stars. They never made a talkie together, although they both appeared in The Hollywood Revue of 1929.
  8. Well with many of the silent stars, they had fairly substantial success in talkies.... certainly Gilbert, Haines, Barthelmess, Davies, Gish..... There's nothing saying they couldn't do a mix of silents and talkies.
  9. Good point. But with their careers mostly behind them, I would think they'd jump on Fonda, Streisand, Jackson, etc..... Fonda goes back to 1960 in films! I know the silent stars are hard because so many of their films are not available or do not have music tracks. BUT in November 2014 they did a general SILENT STARS ON THE MONTH and chose films from a wide variety of silent icons. They could easily do that again.
  10. Russell and cast were brilliant in Women in Love and The Boy Friend. Two of my favorite films.
  11. So many silent stars have never been SOTM: John Gilbert, William Haines, Richard Barthelmess, Marion Davies, Lillian Gish, etc..... on the talkie end, not even Barbra Streisand or Glenda Jackson?

  13. Tula Finklea made only one appearance on Broadway .... at the age of 70. She played the Garbo role in the musical GRAND HOTEL. The NY Times said of her ... "Swathed in velvet and fur, she is a handsome woman. Although "Grand Hotel" doesn't ask much dancing of her, the legendary legs are up to the challenge. As an actress, let's just say she has an elegant presence. And as a singer, well, let's not say anything at all."
  14. Cyd Charisse for STOM? Meh. Could she act? Has Ann Miller ever been STOM?
  15. Amazon pretty much ruined IMDb and is still in the process of turning it into a streaming service.
