In my adventures online, I stumbled across a statement that got me thinking. Someone confidently asserted that the global silent movie fanbase was shrinking, would continue to shrink and that young people are simply not joining up.
This doesn’t match my experience as I have dealt with quite a range of ages. However, I wanted to investigate with an unscientific survey.
The first question is easy: what’s your general age?
The second question may be a bit confusing. What I want to know is not based on when you saw your first silent but when you knew that silent movies were special and you had to see more. (This may indeed coincide with seeing your first silent but it may have taken a few tries to win you over.)
The last question is based entirely on your opinion and experience and there is no right or wrong answer.
(If the poll does not show up below, here is a direct link.)
Thanks for helping to satisfy my curiosity!
