Title: 100 Favorite Silent Movies
Post by: RCMerchant on May 13, 2022, 10:39:57 PM
I know lots of folks don't watch silent movies. But if you do- what do you consider the best?

For me- and this is in no real order.

1. SAFETY LAST (1923) with Harold Llyod.

The clock scene, of course, is classic.

It's like Keaton mixed with Hitchcock.

8. PANDORA'S BOX (1929)
This movie is...I can't explain it. It oozes despair and sex.
With the stunning Louise Brooks. I dare anyone to show me any actress who is this sexy and cool...and you never hear her voice. She is dangerous.

I doubt I've seen 100 silent movies... I'd guess it's closer to 50 or so. But if we're making a list then one of my all-time favorites,

9. THE CABINET OF DR. CALIGARI (1920)

 ^ I'm certain I haven't either. But we can give it the ol' BAD movies try!

10. the GOLEM (1920)
Though a 1914 version once existed, only snippets remain now.
The 1920 version is a beautiful watch. The Karl Freund cinematography is stunning.

I'm not surprised that comedy and horror is the most beloved genres of silent film. It was all visual. Beyond some guy playing a rinky-dink piano.
Dramas need a plot. Slapstick needs a guy falling on his ass and horror needs a "BOO!"

12. DR.MABUSE,THE GAMBLER (1922)

Fritz (METROPLIS) Lang's take on the 'Master Villain' ( which had already been done in serials like FANTOMAS and such).
So outrageous only Lang could have done it so beautiful and grimy at the same time. The birth of film noir, I think.
I saw it on PBS in the mid 70's, on a small black and white TV late at night. Perfect.

It's a shame Murnau died so young. It's like Lon Chaney. Or James Dean. How much more they had to give was gone too soon.

14. Harold Shaw's De Voortrekkers [The Pathfinders, 1916]

One of the few surviving South African silent films. What remains of it can be seen here:

I find it always amazing how a film, or an artist, even almost 100 years later, still is there.
Bob Kane's Joker. To the 1966 BATMAN TV show (my favorite Batman on film), to all the Joker's in all the new stuff.
It is amazing.
Except in the film, the scary looking guy- Gwynplaine- is not a villain.

Here's one I've seen:

I was speaking of BIRTH OF A NATION. Which is an overlong revision of history, of making the Confederacy look like some kind of f**king heros. GONE WITH THE WIND is another. I detest that film.

The only reason I mentioned GREED was it's length. 4 hours is a loooong sit!

I'd long wondered what the film was titled though I saw it perhaps twice as a child on TV broadcast some Saturday or Sunday afternoon.  Years later, I've learned a lot about the AKIM TAMIROFF and EMIL JANNINGS versions, but I haven't seen the '40 version in decades.  AKIM TAMIROFF is a favorite of mine too!

I think I like Stan and Ollie more than Keaton or Chaplin is because Chaplin added pathos, and later social commentary, and Keaton's stone face left me ...stone faced. Laurel and Hardy just was 100% stupid comedy. And that's what I want out of slapstick.

"Dream of the rarebit fiend," which I posted earlier, is also based on a Winsor McKay story. I used to have a book of his comics, not sure where it is now, it's either stuffed in a closet somewhere or I gave it away.

95. WARNING SHADOWS (1923)

This movie is really strange! If your ever by yourself and smoking weed- this is a must see.
Choose your own music.

Rev! Kinda knowing your movie sensibilities, I think you'll enjoy this one!

Thanks RC!

They still make silent movies occasionally. Like this classic:

96. BLANCANIEVES (2012)

https://youtu.be/TmQir83IoBE

Snow White set in the world of Spanish bullfighting in the 20s

^ It does look like I would enjoy it.
I'm an artist (ok, a cartoonist), and I like visuals more than narrative.
Do you think I really care if Captain America beats the Red Skull? No. I just want to see Kirby's pencils and Sinnott's inks. The art was amazing.
I feel the same about some films. I don't care what's going on. As long as the visuals are amazing.

I would list a Valentino film; but I never sat through one!

I sat through this a few years ago at TCM:

99. THE FOUR HORSEMEN OF THE APOCALYPSE (1921)  It's the film that made RUDOLPH VALENTINO a star.

^ I always liked Rex Ingram's work. Valentino had rock star charisma.
