Quite possibly one of the most controversial silent films, this little picture has been responsible for billions of pixels worth of rants. My opinion?
It’s pretty good. Not a masterpiece but it never claimed to be. It’s just a fun little tribute to the silent era and old Hollywood. You’re not a bad silent movie fan for loving it. You’re not a bad silent movie fan for hating it. Everybody, just relax (especially you, Kim Novak) and enjoy.

If it were a dessert it would be: S’mores Pumpkin Pie. An update of a classic but did the classic need updating? But s’mores, yum!
Availability: Released on DVD, Bluray, streaming, the whole shebang.
