Since everyone seemed to have so much fun picking their favorite top-recommended silent film, I thought we could have some fun choosing our favorite stars from 1918.
The source of information will be a write-in contest from Motion Picture Magazine. This will be American-centric due to where the original voters were located.
Obviously, many of these stars are a bit hard to judge due to the fact that their films are lost or are unavailable to the general public, therefore, I will be running two polls: One that is just the plain top 10 from the contest, easy enough. The other list is made up of stars who made the top 50 or so but didn’t crack the top ten. However, they do have a decent body of work or at least one super famous title on home video or who are still recognized by reasonably savvy movie nerds. Let’s see who emerges on top!
So, pick at least one and UP TO FIVE favorites from each list and most of all, have fun! The polls will remain open for a week and I will announce the next round after that.
If you have any issues with the poll displaying correctly, here is a direct link.
Also, be sure to share any film recommendations, especially for the more obscure stars in the top 10!
