I was wondering if there are any Silent Film fans here.
Recently I’ve regained my fond appreciation for the early silent films. (I originally discovered my liking of silent films in college in 1983.) Some of my favorites I now have on DVD.
Just wondering, what are your favorite silent films and actors/actresses?
*]Way Down East (1920) Directed by D.W> Grifith and starring Lillian Gish.
*]Metropolis (1927) Directed by Fritz Lang (German epic film, and early sci-fi classic
*]City Lights (1931) Charlie Chaplin
*]Modern Times (1936) Charlie Chaplin’s last film featuring “The Little Tramp” Also the last silent film of it’s era. (Chaplin took a chance with this film in the new era of talking pictures).
I also have some early films about Jesus that were silent films and my favorite is King of Kings (1927). I remembered seeing this one on tv as a kid in the late 1960’s during Holy Week and now was able to find it on DVD.
