Video Pick of the Week
BABY PEGGY: THE ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM. One of the most charming child stars of the silent era gets an enviable tribute with this release. We get a documentary, a feature (CAPTAIN JANUARY, charming!) and several rare comedy shorts. If you have not yet met Baby Peggy, this is the disc to get. If you are already a fan, you will still want this excellent release. Silent films don't come any sweeter.

Movie Book Pick
SEDUCTIVE CINEMA by James Card. I am only halfway through this book but I love it to death! Card saw the silents during their original theatrical run and he's out to bust myths, kick down idols and generally raise hell as only a brainiac can. This book is smart, opinionated, decidedly unscholarly (meant in the best possible way) and it's a kick to read. Top target: The cult of D.W. Griffith.
