Yeah, the scene at the end was just perfect and I loved in the final scene how the film he is mimicking gets gradually more impossible for him to reenact , when the man is shown holding twins and Keaton just scratches his head as if to say "how on earth do I do that!?", I laughed so hard at that bit. The motorbike scene was aces also and I kept thinking he was going to crash but executes it (as always) with fine precision that we know and love from him.
Film today (IMO) will always lack what that era had in bucket loads. I have such deep nostalgia for that time in cinema. The "innocence" of cinema, if you like.

I don't think I've watched any Harold Lloyd films yet but know that he was certainly underrated in his time. I do however want to watch his "Safety Last" film, as that's meant to be his best work - have you seen it? I also highly recommend Chaplins "City Lights" - "The Kid" - "The Gold Rush" and my favourite Chaplin film of all time, "The Great Dictator". Man, that speech! Also "A Trip to the Moon" by Méliès is a must see and possibly his most well known film. There is so much of his work that you can watch on YouTube that you could easily get through loads in one night.

The 20's list sounds great, as Méliès has produced some great, very early short films (going back into the late 1800's), like his 1898 "Santa Claus", which I just adore. And don't even get me started on Murnau, Lang, Zecca and Chomón's work or we really will be here all night!

Thanks for the chat, it's always great to find someone else that has great and obscure taste in film.



I know right, definitely the best ending to a silent film ever and agreed, while I haven't seen a great deal of films from this era I do love them immensely. And no, I've seen Lloyd referenced heaps, especially Safety Last which is why I want to watch it and I saw City Lights years and years ago and I barely remember it except for the boxing match (that was City Lights yeah?) and have you seen Modern Times? Brilliant And I've heard of A Trip To The Moon before I think, it was the inspiration for a Smashing Pumpkins video I'll look him up later. I went on Youtube before and I found stuff like Battleship Potempkin and The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari and even Birth of a freaking Nation! Jackpot And thanks for the recommendations, I think I've seen Lang's Metropolis before vaguely.

And yeah you too, although I'm at best a rookie when it comes to early cinema, I haven't had the chance or resources to watch a heap, but I agree, people with left-field taste in film are the best sort of people



Yep, that was City Lights and Modern Tmes is awesome - I'm trying to remember if that's the film with the Cocaine scene? That was brilliant, absolutely hilarious! The Smashing Pumpkins did reference A Trip to the Moon, yes. I think it was in their "Tonight Tonight" video? The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari is amazeballs, as is Der Golem, Nosferatu (classic), Faust, Metropolis, Woman in the Moon (that ones around 3 hours long, as is Metropolis but well worth checking out).

Happy watching!

Yeah that cocaine scene is from Modern Times and that's the one! Love that song. And I haven't got around to watching Cabinet yet but I will most likely tonight. I've found all the other movies you've mentioned on Youtube too A 3 hour silent film, sounds daunting


Just watched Chaplin's "The Kid", loved it

The Kid is such a beautiful film. I've watched his "A Dog's Life" twice now since last night and have just finished watching Monsieur Verdoux, which is a "talkie". I had only seen one of Chaplin's talkies previous to this (The Great Dictator) and I'm happy to report that this doesn't disapoint. Well worth the watch.


Monsieur Verdoux 4/5

So disappointing. I was waiting the entire movie for Glenn Ford to deck that punk West. Never happened.

Brilliant noir film from the legendary Stanley Kubrick. And the ending minor spoilers, I've never wanted to punt a frigging dog more in my entire life

Sherlock Jr (1924) 4.5/5

Further proof that Buster Keaton is one of the greatest to ever grace the film industry. Absolute genius.



Just about to watch this! Silent comedy is a big part of my life, so even I'm surprised that I still haven't seen this.

I still prefer Chaplin however but feel there's room for both in my world!



Agree, it took me a long time to get into Keaton's stuff for some reason but loved it once I did. Chaplin for me will always be king however.

Ah yeah The Kid is wonderful, full of pathos and is utterly heart-wrenching in parts. Its also terrifically funny too.

Safety Last you will like also btw; it is very clever.

Mark of Zorro (1940)

This was starting as I was going to my bed the other night and I stayed up to watch. It was romantic, silly drivel like the old Errol Flynn films; and I loved it! Basil Rathbone was always watchable and Tyrone Power was very good too playing the eponymous hero and his foppish disguise as a dreary airhead idiot of a son. Some good bits in it; especially the duel at the end which was fantastic and looked great even by today's lofty standards. You couldn't ask for more out of a Zorro film.

7/10

Sherlock Jr. - Buster Keaton was at his creative peak with this film. The sight gags are among his best ever, each one managing to top the one before, and no other comedian has, in my opinion, ever matched his superb comic timing.
For me, Buster is far and away the best of the silent comedians, followed by Harold Lloyd and with Chaplin a distant third (I await your howls of protest, Ninja).

*Howling in protest at sieg* Grrrr!


Only joking, it's a bit like Marmite (I guess), with the silent comedians and everyone who is a fan seems (at times) to hold a total different opinion as to who they think was the better one. They all did immensely well, except perhaps Lloyd but I'm still utterly looking forward to catching Safety Last! ASAP.

Safety Last is one of my favourite silent comedies, containing one of the most famous scenes in the history of film. Harold Lloyd tends sadly to be overlooked today, but there is a nine disc set available containing all of his feature length films, plus a selection of his best shorts.
Apart from Safety Last, I'd particularly recommend Grandma's Boy and The Freshman.
Your comment that "They all did well, except perhaps Lloyd" is interesting in light of the fact that at one stage his films were more popular, and outgrossed those of Chaplin, which makes it all the more sad that he tends to be so unappreciated today.

I adore Keaton (the number of his films in my top 500 is evidence) and even with only seeing one Harold Lloyd film, I'd place him between Keaton and Chaplin. But Laurel and Hardy still take the top spot.

The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (1962)

I stay away from John Wayne films usually since I detest him with a passion, but this had the great Jimmy Stewart in it along with the ever brilliant Lee Marvin and the always likeable Lee van Cleef in a minor role. I enjoyed this film despite Wayne's inclusion and am glad I've seen it now.

7/10

Next up to see is The Naked Spur...

I've been watching a lot of their shorts recently and I honestly forgot (since I haven't seen them much since I was a lad) how funny they were - every single time Hardy gives that look to us the audience, it cracks me up!

However, I've just discovered that DVD Planet have a ten disc set available called Laurel And Hardy: The Essential Collection. It's expensive, but what the hell! I've just ordered it.

Don't get me wrong, I understand that he made some good films and I've read a lot about him, Keaton, Chaplin, Laurel & Hardy etc. etc. When I said that "they all did immensely well, except perhaps him" I meant that compared to the rest he was most definitely overlooked but thanks for the recommendations, I'll check out Safety Last! - first! And see if I get into it as much as I hope. I'm especially looking forward to witnessing the famous clock scene. As, I've read so much about it....

Yes, I love that too. Laurel is my favourite though and every time he lets out that high pitch squeak (as he so often does when he gets overly emotional) I just crack up! So, so funny.

Looking forward to your comments on Safety Last, Ninja. I hope it will encourage you to check out more of his films.

Just had a look at that set. I can't find the complete list of films it includes but it does look grand. From the sounds of it, it had better picture quality then this one - http://www.amazon.co.uk/Laurel-Hardy-Collection-21-disc-Box/dp/B0001K2KE8/ref=sr_1_1?s=dvd&ie=UTF8&qid=1325921117&sr=1-1

- a massive set that came out about 8 years back, which is one of my favourite DVDs. I've been told off on here though because I also like to watch the colourised version that this set includes!

I could talk about laurel and Hardy for days, I just love them

- a massive set that came out about 8 years back, which is one of my favourite DVDs. I've been told off on here though because I also like to watch the colourised version that this set includes!

I could talk about laurel and Hardy for days, I just love them


Like you, I was unable to find a complete list of all the films in the collection (a bit frustrating), but it contains 58 of their short and feature length films, as well as over two hours of special features. It sounds well worth the risk, as apparently all of the films have been restored and digitally remastered.
The copies of Way Out West and Sons Of The Desert that I have also contain colourised versions, which like you I enjoy watching. I say to hell with the purists.

Not as many as I would have liked, but those I have seen I've loved.
