Silent movies are famous for their passionate love scenes but I am personally rather fond of the adorably direct ways the stars found to flirt with their true loves.
Clara Bow makes her feelings for Clive Brook very clear in Hula. (Flapper actresses were often paired with far older leading men.)
Lenore Ulric is equally forward with Theodore von Eltz in Tiger Rose, an underrated gem of a wilderness picture.
Pola Negri and Harry Lietdke give one another the glad eye in The Eyes of the Mummy.
The hero of the anarchic Onésime, You’ll Get Married… or Else is admiring the view during a bride lottery.
