It is interesting that THE JAZZ SINGER is scheduled for April. With recent issues regarding blackface, it is surprising that TCM would want to touch it with a ten-foot pole.

I like that Our Gang shorts are scheduled for April. I would like to see a tribute to Ernie Morrison, also known as "Sunshine Sammy," the first black actor to be signed to a long-term motion-picture contract (or so I have heard).

The TCM powers that be don't believe in censoring the past. They always include disclaimers before or after the films air in their wraparounds. 

Jacqueline Stewart will no doubt include a disclaimer during her introduction of the film,with further insight.

I'm interested in The Jazz Singer.  I've never seen it before.  I am also curious about Wings seeing that it was the first film to win the Best Picture Oscar.

Further insight is much better than a mere disclaimer! I love that Jacqueline Stewart is hosting; she can give the kind of insight that others could not. She may give the same kind of insight on the Our Gang films.

We unfortunately do not pay for the tier that TCM is on, so we don't receive it in our house -- but I am still a vintage-film buff. I am fortunate to have our 77-library cooperative system which allows me to borrow so many vintage films for free!

Silent Sunday nights is pretty much everything I look forward to on the weekends. I'm always excited to see the offerings and find out more about early filmmaking. They aren't all gems, but sometimes just the fact that what you're seeing exists is important.

I would like to hear more discussion about the technical aspects of each film. Even a bad movie has good lessons to teach us. I will say, though, there have been more good movies shown than bad ones.

I hope everyone is Watching "Shoes". Really excellent camera work, and the age is apparent in the film from which it was taken. I like to see that. It's honest. I wonder how we know now what filter to use? There is no color to the film itself, so it is projected through various filters. It had to have been recorded somewhere.

MS Stewart just capped it off and mentioned the original notes. I guess that answers that.

I'd like to see GREED Erich Von Stroheims masterpiece. I'm glad that the Women In Films over. I just couldn't relate to them. There have recently been too many newer films that take up too much time. I enjoy the early silent classics of Harold Lloyd, Buster Keaton, Chaplin, Pickford, Stroheim, Arbuckle, etc. Please stick to the oldies of talkies and silents.  Thank you.
