The Classic Movie History Project Blogathon: The Silent Era


Welcome to the Classic Movie History Project Blogathon! My co-hostesses and I will be giving you a guided tour through the history of film from 1915 to 1950. I will be handling the silent era (1915-1926), Silver Screenings is hosting 1927-1938 on 1/13/14 and Once Upon a Screen is responsible for 1939-1950 on 1/14/14.
