Re: What's The Last Silent Movie You Watched? [2018]

There's little doubt that I miss the occasional detail that is important to my readers (I wrote that in the singular at first, then changed it to them plural -- it's early in the morning and I'm still hopeful). Because so many women's hats strike me as weird, noticing the occasional extra-weird one...

Yes the ones below the eclipse have been identified so it's just the ones above that need to be identified.

Help Identify This film or Actors

I got a small roll nitrate film. It appears to be the first half of reel 2 of a movie. The plot for this section is that a group of people (6-10 men and one woman) in Paris can take whatever they want from the stores and bank and live on the Eiffel Tower. Jealousy and loneliness drive them insane. D...

Interested, if only to learn what a hallroom is.
A hallroom was a room in a boarding house that had no window and was a reduced rate.

I'd be interested! Are these from 9.5 mm?
Yes, I got them from Europe a number of years ago and had them transferred and added a musical score.

That got me into silent films in general, but especially hers. I ran an ad in the Big Reel for several years in the late 80's early 90's searchi...

Re: new DVD - restored 1913 Kinetophone shorts

Great Job! I thoroughly enjoyed these. But also glad it didn't catch on back then. Just think of all the marvelous silent films we would have lost if everything went to sound in 1913.
