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!
I haven’t posted any news in quite some time and exciting things are happening in the world of silent films!
We have two winners to announce for the Gloria Swanson Bluray Giveaway sponsored by Kino Lorber! This is very exciting.
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.
Hello, dears, this is just a little public service announcement to let you know that things are heating up at my work and with my project to release a silent film on DVD.
Hi, everybody! I’m just letting you know that I have fled the area. Well, not “fled” really. But I need those clickbait clicks, so can we pretend that I fled?
My crowdfunding campaign to release the 1917 version of Kidnapped on DVD is entering its final stretch, just a few hours to go. To celebrate, I’m going to share a few more preview images.
Wild happenings for the end of 2017! More crowdfunding for us to support and an interesting selection of silent film-related books being released.
Most of the news this time around is about the site, so maybe this is false advertising. But I do really have ballet, so don’t run away!
I am so excited to share a project that I have had in the works since March. Silent movie fans probably know that crowdfunding obscure releases is a popular activity and I decided to throw my hat into the ring.
I’m always trying out new things on the site and I’m happy to announce that I am trying out a new cooking series. While I have been experimenting with silent era celebrity recipes for quite some time with my Cooking with the (Silent) Stars posts, my new feature will focus on the films themselves.
As we come to the end of the year, we have a ton of silent film releases to enjoy. Most of these films are available on Bluray for the first time ever.
Here we go again. Every time there is a scandal in Hollywood, some smartypants decides that it’s time to dust off the innuendos and myths surrounding the death of Virginia Rappe. This time, the AP is the culprit and it’s up to us to let them know.
Some exciting happenings in the silent film world, so let’s dive right in! We have some exciting new releases on the horizon and a new project to back.
The good people at Kino Lorber have invited me to host a giveaway of their brand new Beggars of Life Bluray! I know many of you have been looking forward to this film and now you have a chance to get a free copy.
Some big news for silent movie fans, so let’s dive right in. We have a lost film found, a whole bunch of Blurays and a cunning plan.
The good news: After years of putting up with terrible pricing and customer service, as well as speeds so slow that my dial-up modem was laughing, I will be dumping my old service and slipping over to (hopefully) better speeds and reliability.
The bad news: It must be installed and I don’t know how long it will take.
Who likes free stuff? Everyone, that’s who! Well, there’s tons of news about free silent films, so hold onto your hats!
Lots of happenings in the silent film release department. Blurays galore, many of them hotly anticipated, plus some other exciting projects for silent film fans. Let’s get started!
