1919 was really a banner year for motion pictures. Naturally, the majority of silent films are lost but just from what survives… wow. So, tell me which 1919 releases you are going to particularly smile about during their centennial year?
I know for a fact that I won’t be able to get to everything in 2019 (much as I want to) but I am going to luxuriate in the embarrassment of cinematic riches.
Here are the 1919 releases I have already reviewed. Obviously, this is not EVERY release of 1919 and I have not yet reviewed some huge releases of the year but still, I think there are some impressive titles here.
In the new year, I am really looking forward to covering The Lost Battalion as it stars members of, well, the Lost Battalion. (They were neither lost nor a battalion but never let the facts get in the way of a good moniker.) And, of course, I will probably find an excuse to give some love to Douglas Fairbanks. This was his last fully “modern” year before he fully embraced the costume swashbuckler.
Which 1919 pictures are you looking forward to? As always, there are no wrong answers, just share some silent movie love! Need inspiration? Here’s a little rundown of the year.
