Silent Star of the Month
In the beginning, films were silent. What early filmmakers
lacked in sound, they made up with creative and artistic techniques. And
it all ended with a jazz singer in the Jazz Age, but the output that
survives from the silent period is astonishing, both in quantity and in
content. Unfortunately, the new generations are unacquainted with the
great pictures and the great actresses and actors from yesteryear.
Through this page, we want to renew the interest in the silent film,
lifting its label of "unfamiliar and remote" and making it, if not
cherished, at least acknowledged and respected.
