Recently, Millennials were accused of not liking old movies and I am working on a more in-depth response but in the meantime, here is a quick comeback for my Millennial readers in the likely event that they are accused of killing classic movies.
One of the big things the article sniffs about is Millennials never having seen a black-and-white movie from beginning to end. Well, I think I can fix that.
I present you with an entire black-and-white movie in GIF form:
Watch this GIF and you can say that, yes, you have seen an entire old movie, Mr. Man. And one older than any of these argle-bargle troublemakers have likely seen. The 1888 sequence called Roundhay Garden Scene is possibly the oldest surviving footage in the world. So there.
Well, that was fun. Enjoy your classic and silent films, whoever you are and whatever age you are.
P.S. The header image is from The Doll, a silent comedy delight that everyone should see at least once.
