Silent Film

Silent Film During 1921, actress Alice Lake, with the film Uncharted Seas (Wesley Ruggles) knudged in between the battle for covergirl transpiring between Viola Dana and May Allison, both for Metro Pictures Corporation. Priscilla Dean stayed on the periphery of the dogfight with her film Reputation for Universal Jewel Deluxe. Silent FilmSilent FilmSilent Film From the advertising of 1927 for the film White Gold, actress Jetta Goudal seemed a sensation. The direction of William K Howard was reviewed as "distinctive". The Film Daily wrote, "His method of creating atmosphere appropriate to the action, while not relatively new, is most effective. The monotonous creaking of a rocker, the dreary routine of the sickening desert heat, all these and more,creating detail, makes his efforts outstanding." The photoplay was scripted by Garret Fort with scenario writer Marion Orth. Scott Lord Silent Film

I'm reading John Dickson Carr (no 24 hr. internet)

Scott Lord Scott Lord


This novel is fun- its a classic mystery and the form is great. There's three murders in it connected by the mysterious ten tea cups from the 16th century, which have peacock features on them. Antiques connected to foul play!
I have no 24 hr internet till the middle of the week, for for a couple days, please realize that the revision to my personal blogs, my blogs on film criticism, my on line novel, my blogs on film history and my online poetry has been stopped cold. I over downloaded my limit and it will be returning shortly.
Untill then I'm reading John Dickson Carr.

Keystone presents MGM Stars and Studios (1927) Lost Film?



An owner of a 16mm copy of this is searching to see if the film exists- I AM VERY PROUD to feature his filmclip here.

Please visit my webpage on silent film: Lost Film, Found Magazines to read on what lost films are and how they are part of silent film collecting.

New dimensions, the decorative arts of today in words & pictures

New dimensions, the decorative arts of today in words & pictures

This is a cool little volume to skim through on art in the 1920's. It begins with the essay "What is Modern?"
Actually, its a little background behind the silent film era for art majors.

The yellow book : an illustrated quarterly Sir Fredrick Leighton

The yellow book : an illustrated quarterly

I've left the volume open at the story Vivian and Merlin. Please visit the above link.




I've always thought of Lord Leighton as a ghost I would want to know, not that I am he himself comeback for a visit, of course. The above link is to The Yellow Book and while skimming through it I found the above Pre-Raphealite.

Scott Lord Silent Film Magazine Cover Art

Scott Lord Silent Film

I am revising my web pages on silent film, particularly after having begun reading two very seminal textbooks, Film Until Now, by Paul Rotha and Scandinavian Film, by Forsyth Hardy. There is always the possibility that a third textbook will be with my material on Silent Film Magazine cover art, so during coffee breaks I'm glancing through full page magazine advertisements that act as movie posters.
Meanwhile, if you check my blogs, I'll be spending some of the end of the summer on the ocean and have a little time before we'll be there. It will be near where the poem The Wreck of the Hesperus, by Longfellow, takes place- last year we had a romantic moonlight walk near the house of a painter, Fitz Hugh Lane, after having had dinner.

Vampyr (Carl Th. Dreyer, 1932)



I don't know for how long this film will be with us, but please feel invited to its screening.

Under the Red Robe (Victor Sjostrom 1937)

Please visit my webpage on the history of Swedish and Silent Film as I am looking to quote from my future correspondence with authors who have published on the subject. Scott Lord Silent Film

Woman to Woman (1929) The new old film for which I have to make time



This fascinates me. I will generally watch anything like it and there are several Basil Rathbone films from before 1936 that I would still like to watch again. Anything from this studio could be intriguing. I just can't guarantee for how long any You Tube video will exist.
Please wait for my review.
