Major Stars of the Silent Era.

It's sad to think that Theda Bara's feature films are lost forever, Rin - Tin - Tin's films haven't fared much better although he made it into the talkies and in colour, only Valentino's films have survived in any quantity to the modern era. If you haven't seen the posters etc available of these three stars on GAOH just type in the name on the Photo's page.…

D. W. Griffith.

I recently bought this centenary set for Intolerance (1916) It's the only DVD that has the original Joseph Carl Breil score played at the New York premiere. I say original Griffith re-edited the film at least eight times between 1916 and 1926, each time Breil changed the score to suit and when the film opened in London it had a completely different score, in Europe distributors were told to supply their own scores for the picture. Breil's score is the original but there were at least a dozen…

Favourite Classics of the Silver Screen.

I love all three films but Mrs Miniver is in a class all it's own especially the kitchen scene with the German flier, it's genuinely spine tingling every time I watch it…

Affairs of the Heart: The Wedding Night (1935)

To view The Wedding Night click here. The Wedding Night was doomed from the start. It was producer Samuel Goldwyn’s final attempt at making the Ukrainian actress Anna Sten into a Garbo-level star, and his persistence had become something of a Hollywood joke. The Wedding Night became known around town as “Goldwyn’s Last Sten,” but […]

Murnau and the Phantoms of Germany

To view Phantom click here. It’s that time of year when Nosferatu (1922), F.W. Murnau’s interpretation of Dracula, appears on lists of recommended horror films. The oldest, existing film version of Bram Stoker’s novel, Nosferatu is likely Murnau’s most watched title. It’s eerie Expressionist style was a major influence on the American horror genre, but […]
