Well, we have a little over two weeks left in 2019, so let’s share some positivity! Did you have any nice experiences related to silent films? Please share!
Your experiences can be anything from showing your kids their first silent to seeing one on the big screen to just being able to enjoy something on YouTube. Large or small, tell us what you enjoyed and why.
For big news, my favorite experience was probably helping to restore the title cards for The Gun Fighter (1917). I learned so much and it was thrilling to assist in making a silent film look like its old self after a century.
For home media pleasures, I was so happy to expand my knowledge of comedy pioneer Alice Howell thanks to the quality content of The Alice Howell Collection released by Undercrank Productions. Women in comedy and especially women in silent comedy rarely get the respect they are owed and so this beautiful collection was most welcome. And Alice is indeed a howl! Brash, hilarious and eye-opening.
Finally, I am proud of my review of The Dreyfus Affair (1899), which was over a year in the making and examines the case as portrayed in films from the 1890s to the 1990s.
Now it’s your turn! Share some happy memories!
