It’s Alive!!! And So Am I!

Whew! That was an adventure! But the site has successfully migrated to its new host and we can now resume our usual shenanigans, including commenting.

I will be continuing to refine the look of the site and there may be some issues with images for a while but other than that, we are bright-eyed and bushy-tailed here at Movies Silently.

And in other good news, my hemoglobin has doubled and I am feeling loads better so I hope this means I can resume some of the projects I had to temporarily lay aside. I won’t be announcing anything yet because I am paranoid and, frankly, don’t want to jinx myself but I am optimistic.

I hope you are all doing well and weathering the pandemic. I have been trying to share information about free silent movies and a kind reader pointed a new one out to me, Henri from the Cinémathèque française.

There doesn’t seem to be a region lock, I was able to access it just fine from California.

Thank you for your patience! Now let’s get back to the business of celebrating silent films!

    Between computer and health woes, you certainly had your hands full, especially at a time when we’re all feeling uneasy. It’s so good to have you back … Now stay well and have a Happy Easter!

    These are great news in the middle of bads ones! Nice new look!

    Just saw Nosferatu again, it’s quite timely with its epidemic content. And of course it’s very hemoglobin lifting.

    Btw, do you know any silents about the Spanish influenza?

      Thanks so much! I don’t know any offhand, though Nosferatu (as you say) obviously would have been informed by recent events. It’s quite possible there were some but the titles that come to mind (Plague of Florence from Fritz Lang) deal with historical plagues. Maybe everyone just wanted to forget?


    A wee slip in the Fifteen Essential…? Pardon pedantry. Looks great and crystal clear. Thanks.
