Okay, let’s dive into the second round of this movie tournament! We’re trying to discover the greatest silent swashbuckler of them all and after narrowing things down in the first round, we have BRACKETS!Continue reading “The Silent Swashbuckler Tournament: Round 2! Did Your Favorites Survive?”
I have had some requests for recaps of silent screenings I have attended so I thought I would give it a shot. I don’t attend all that many compared to other silent movie peeps and I don’t actually think I am very good at recapping this sort of thing and doing it justice but let’s give this a shot.Continue reading “So… I went to a silent film screening with an orchestra score…”

Great news! I am giving away five paperback copies of How To Film Moving Pictures in the 1910’s so read on to find out how you can enter to win one of these copies!
I have goodies! Well, one goodie but it’s a pretty good goodie. A copy of Southern Belle To Hollywood Hell: Corliss Palmer and Her Scandalous Rise and Fall by Jennifer Ann Redmond and it can be yours!
You came, you saw, you voted and now it’s time to unveil the winners! (Spoiler: It was a complete and utter slaughter!)
FIIIIIIIIIIGHT!!!! Many, many silent films have been remade as talkies so which is better? The original or the remake? I made a little survey with six stories and twelve movies. Your task: choose which you like better, the silent or the talkie.
It’s the last day of the Springtime Silent Movie Challenge and I am sharing what I watched! I indulged myself utterly by filling my viewing list with pictures from France and Britain but there are some other lovely tidbits to be found as well.
This spring, I challenged myself and my readers to watch more silent films from the pre-feature era. We’re coming to the finish line, summer is on the horizon and I want to know how you are doing with the challenge.
It’s time to announce the winners of my Douglas Fairbanks Bluray Giveaway sponsored by Kino Lorber!
Douglas Fairbanks is one of the most beloved stars of the silent screen and he’s getting a brand new double feature release in HD. Even better, you can win a copy!
What’s better than a silent movie? A free silent movie! That’s right, I have Blurays to give away and both feature the glorious Gloria Swanson!
While the silent era lasted for over three decades, it is the 1920s that seems to define the art of mute cinema. People who don’t know any better even type things like “1920s silent movie” without thinking twice.
Today is the last day of the Swashathon and there are still new posts coming in. I have been updating the roster since Friday, so be sure to check it out and enjoy all the swashbuckling goodness!

After a hiatus from blogathon hosting, I am back and rarin’ to go! I was thrilled and honored when Flicker Alley invited me to host an event in celebration of their new Early Women Filmmakers box set (it will be released May 9, 2017) and I’m sure you’ll be just as excited.
What’s better than a Buster Keaton Bluray? A free Buster Keaton Bluray! That’s right, the good people at Kino Lorber have provided two Buster Keaton Bluray sets for me to give away to my readers!
I promised to deliver this before the new year and I did! Okay, so it was down to the wire but it’s here at last!
If you’re like me, you were pretty excited when Flicker Alley announced that they would be releasing Children of Divorce (1927), which stars Clara Bow and Gary Cooper. Well, it gets even better! How would you like to win a copy?
