I’m on vacation but I wanted to drop a quick note to let you know that my DVD release of Kidnapped (1917) and its accompanying short films now has expanded distribution.
Greetings! Today has been a little nuts (I went out of town yesterday and got some pictures of silent film locations and I started my new job) so I am just going to share a few oldie but goodie articles and some silliness I have been engaged in online.
Last week, I wrote about some matters that could possibly effect the site’s future. Well, I am happy to say that everything has been satisfactorily resolved.
So much exciting news for silent movie fans right now with treasures both famous and obscure finally making it to home video. I’m pretty excited! Continue reading “News from the Silent Movie Front: Turn of the Century Filmmaking, Women Filmmakers and Silent Sci-Fi”
A few things have been churning in the real world that will affect the amount of time I have to dedicate to the website. I am going to be having a meeting today that should settle those matters.

Just a few news items this time but I think they’re pretty amazing.

A couple of very interesting happenings in the world of early/silent film, both of which promise a slight rewriting of film history.
Hi there! As of this time yesterday, I had absolutely no thoughts of getting a kitten but here I am.
Since completing my Kickstarter campaign, I have had many people pop in and ask if there would be a public release (there will be) and if I would inform them of the date.
As some of you already know, I have been hard at work with my Kickstarter project, the release of the 1917 version of Kidnapped and all four short films that originally accompanied it on DVD.
A little while ago, I launched a line of silent movie-themed goodies like T-shirts, mugs, scarves, dresses, etc. I mentioned that if these items sold well, I would try a second design.
Several readers have inquired about Carlo. Sorry for not posting an update sooner! He’s doing much better.
Many apologies for the lateness of posts this week. My older dog has been sick for the past couple of days. We thought he was over it yesterday but he relapsed today.
I’ve been a little quiet these past few days because I have been working on something that has been percolating in my brain for a bit and I finally had a design idea that tickled me pink: Movies Silently t-shirts and swag!
I asked my readers to vote for the silent movie superstar who would provide the recipe for my 100th Cooking with the Silent Stars post. You voted, I counted and here we are!

Hi, everyone. Sorry to be a party pooper but I have been struck down with a flu bug. I’m actually on the mend but I think I was a little ambitious today, so I’m taking it easy until tomorrow.
Readers, I chose the latter. I was planning to get something better for you today but I am a bit compulsive (as you might have noticed) and I started organizing my tax stuff and then it seemed like a shame to stop in the middle…
Movies Silently has turned nine! It’s almost a tween! Aww!
Lots and lots and lots of silent movies being released soon! I’m just going to cover what’s out now and what’s coming up imminently. Hold onto your wallets!
And just when I hit “publish” on my last news piece, two bits of wonderful news came my way. These are too good to wait, so I am taking the liberty of publishing an addendum.
2018 is starting off with a bang as a pair much-anticipated silent films are coming to HD home video at long last. Let’s jump in and see what goodies await us.
As you know, I like to publish reviews every Sunday and this week’s selection is the oft-requested The Student Prince in Old Heidelberg. Alas, I am having some technical difficulty with my computer that can’t be dealt with until Monday. Look for Lubitsch, Novarro and Shearer then!
Welcome to my hidden mountain lair, full of trapdoors and all the shark tanks OSHA would allow. (So, none, basically.) And now, Mr. Bond, before I kill you, I will reveal all my fiendish plans, which you shall be unable to stop.
