As a kid I loved silent movies, but as I've grown older I seem to have went off them sadly. Harold Lloyd and The Phantom Of The Opera were particular favourites.

* Lon Chaney

* Buster Keaton

* John Barrymore

* Charlie Chaplin

* Harold Lloyd

* Douglas Fairbanks

* Conrad Veidt

* Lillian Gish

Laurel & Hardy and W.C. Fields also come to mind, but I liked their "talkies" better than their silent films (especially Fields).

Mystery of the leaping Fish definitely holds a special place in my heart.

Me and my niece and nephew watch some Buster keaton things they had on TCM. They were really funny. looney tunes was clearly influenced by that kind of comedy.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
