Trying out something new! I’ve noticed that people enjoy unboxings and hauls and so I am going to share my latest haul of silent movies. Hope you like it!
This one’s from Flicker Alley. As you probably know by now, I am a sucker for weird and so this collection has my name on it. It’s a collection of fourteen films scored by the Alloy Orchestra, one of the more modern concerns in silent movie music. I already have some of the films in other sets but am looking forward to the scores.
I’ve seen this film before (looooooooooong time ago) but I wanted to add it to my collection as I do love my mainstream Hollywood epics. Directed by Michael Curtiz, Noah’s Ark was an attempt to out-DeMille DeMille on his home turf. Especially interesting for students of the sound transition.
Another sound transition era film from Warner Archive. The Pagan made Ramon Novarro’s career all over again, that fella could sing! It’s an entry into the South Seas sub-genre that was so popular in the mid- and late-1920s.
So that’s my haul! Don’t be surprised if some of these films show up in the review pipeline sometime soon.
