Theme Month! June 2020: International Crime Wave

I thought that we might need another month of lighter fare and so I chose a genre that is dear to my heart and popular in general: crime pictures. And to make it even more fun, I have settled on selections from all over the world.

Silent era audiences loved solving mysteries, watching criminals at work and rooting for a certain private detective living in a Baker Street flat and who can blame them? Silent era crime pictures were of the highest quality.

To whet your appetites, here are a few crime pictures I have already reviewed:

Sherlock and Friends

Sherlock Holmes Baffled (1900)

The Copper Beeches (1912)

Sherlock Holmes (1916)

The Man with the Twisted Lip (1921)

Sherlock Holmes (1922)

Crime Comedy

You’d Be Surprised (1926)

The Cat and the Canary (1927)

The Last Warning (1929)

Serial Crimes

Les Vampires (1915)

Judex (1916)

The House of Mystery (1923)

Miss Mend (1926)

British Crimes

The Pirates of 1920 (1911)

I hope you’ll enjoy the month!
