Readers have been requesting more happy content so let’s take this opportunity to talk about the silent movies that make us smile.
Obviously, “feel-good” is relative and depends on your taste, personality, experiences and culture so feel free to share even offbeat choices.
My go-to feel-good silents are on the cute side of things. The Wishing Ring is a whimsical little rom-com set in England, shot in New Jersey and features some of the most gorgeous frames of nitrate ever made.
And The Oyster Princess is loud and raucous and fun, a much louder version of the Lubitsch Touch.
Now it’s your turn! I am looking forward to your choices. Who knows? Your picks may give someone just the boost they need for a pleasant day.
