It’s award season but who needs those talkies? We sure don’t! And since the Academy Awards weren’t a thing in 1918, I think it’s high time we make our own silent film award. We’re going to choose the Best Picture for 1918.
Here’s what you have to do:
Comment and nominate your picks.
Any feature-length film (shall we say 4 reels or more?) from any country that was released in 1918 is eligible. Feel free to second anyone else’s choices.
That’s it! Please have fun and I will start up voting on the final picks next week. The number of rounds will depend on how many films are nominated.
For a bit of inspiration, here are the other films of 1918 I have reviewed. You are by no means limited to this list and there are many, many other films from 1918 available to view, I just haven’t gotten to them yet. Feel free to think outside the box as long as the picture was originally four reels or longer.
Obviously, a lot of films are lost and this will be very much the best of what survives and is available for viewing but we’ll do the best we can. I am looking forward to your choices.
