Open, general discussion of silent films, personalities and history.
In response to the ongoing uncertainty about reference to potentially illegal copies of copyrighted material on the site, which confused the moderators as much as anybody, I have posted a new set of guidelines here, which we hope will allow for discussion that can reflect reality without contributing to an infringement problem which has the potential to harm very good friends of the cause of classic films. Please read them; a discussion thread will be in Site Chat.
“I'm in favor of plagiarism. If we are to create a new Renaissance, the government should encourage plagiarism. When convinced that someone is a true plagiarist, we should immediately award them the Legion of Honor.” —Jean Renoir
