STAGECOACH. But this is a talkie, right? Yes, but included in this edition as an extra is the 1917 John Ford-directed silent western BUCKING BROADWAY, starring Harry Carey. This is a chance to see two western icons getting their start in the genre with a nice print and quality score. Oh, yeah, and you also get that "Stagecoach" film as well. Sounds like quite a deal to me!

SILENT CINEMA: AN INTRODUCTION by Paolo Cherchi Usai. This is not an introduction as is "light, easy" but an introduction to the hyper-geek silent movie stuff. Want a list of films for beginners? This ain't it. Want to know about how many silent films were tinted and the mechanism behind the tinting? This is the book for you. Highly technical, highly nerdy, highly recommended. Film measurement tables, archive listings, and the dreaded question of projection speed. Do these topics sound interesting? This is the book for you.
I shall be participating in…
I will be covering Peck's Bad Boy '21 and '34.
I will be covering Antonio Moreno in John Rance, Gentleman (1914).
