Things get so silly sometimes that you just have to let out a giggle. Silent movie stars excelled in all sorts of expressions but most charming of all, perhaps, is the silent movie giggle.
Gail Kane is easily one of the best things about American Revolution romance The Heart of a Hero and I think this GIF illustrates her charm nicely.
Clara Bow finds it all pretty hilarious in Mantrap, an outdoorsy battle of the sexes film.
While Mantrap is available on various public domain DVDs and Blurays, the best version is found in the out-of-print Treasures 5: The West box set.
Leatrice Joy is a bit of a brat in Made for Love, an archeology romance, and I kind of love her for it.
Mary Philbin is amused in Surrender, a film that I actually recommend staying far, far, far away from. It’s… kind of horrible.
William Orlamond can’t hold back his amusement in Getting Gertie’s Garter, which is a film with a plot summed up in the title. Spoiler alert?
