I periodically like to ask readers to contribute their favorite recommendations for newbies to the world of silent cinema. It’s a great way to get a variety of options and make sure that there is something for everyone.
The Cat and the Canary: The two most popular silent genres with modern viewers seem to be horror and comedy so… why not both? This film combines the best of Germany and Hollywood and the result is a stylish, funny little Old Dark House picture. One of the best!
Your turn! Please share the films you feel newcomers will love! Feel free to choose more than one and do share any anecdotes of successful introductions!
