Will shorts be allowed in this poll?

Apparently I have only seen 22 films from this era, and 15 of them are Keaton. I am working on my 23rd film right now though, but it just so happens that Les Vampires is as long as something that happens to be particularly long.

Also, everybody needs to make sure they watch A Trip to the Moon (1902) and Un Chien Andalou (1929) before submitting a list. Great stuff.

This ratio is to be encouraged.

I'm really pleased with how Buster is going to do in this. It feels weird to need to be pimping out Chappers instead. But everyone go watch The Immigrant at once.

Seriously though I've got a few Chaplin films on my rental list and I've put all the 20's stuff on high priority so hopefully I'll get a few of them watched before the deadline.

I like Mark Chapman, he used to Italian football on five. Though he was no James Richardson obviously.

I've no idea how long youtube have been offering films for rent, but they also have a lot of free ones, which are handily gathered in the same place. A lot of films eligible for this list are in the above Classics link, viewable for free.

Finally got around to watching The Immigrant, and while it was pretty good, every Keaton short I have seen thus far has been superior.

I'm recommending that people try and watch this if they are looking to increase their films for the era. Watched it earlier this year and it was brilliant.

Seastrom?  I've never really noticed that billing, even though it's apparently the same on The Wind.

Two of his films are already in my draft top 10.

I am planning to give that quite a few points as well. I need to get around to some more Chaney!

I have to admit, this era is a bit of blind spot for me; haven't watched many pre-1930s but did start to make an effort over the past year, so hopefully should be able to get a half decent list. My husband read Hollywood Babylon last year and that gave him few ideas for interesting films.

If anyone is struggling for ideas of films to check out, this site has a list which it updates when new contributions are made of the top 100 silent films (with 101-300 also available to view) - http://www.silentera.com/info/top100.html

Why can't I buy The Phantom Carriage for anything cheaper than about 5 million pounds? And why is it only available to watch online at Lovefilm

I've seen The Phantom of the Opera and The Penalty and liked both a great deal. With that said, recommend me some more Lon Chaney to seek out.

Can anyone recommend a good starting point for Harold Lloyd?

Edit: Apart from Safety Last which I've already seen.

Grandma's Boy and The Freshman are both pretty decent. Also 'Get out and get under', 'Ask Father', Billy Blazes esq', 'Are Crooks Dishonest' and 'Never Weaken' are really good shorts.

Is it too late to encourage you to also watch some Harry Langdon? 

Also, everyone should watch The Cameraman's Revenge!

I have access to the Laurel & Hardy box set and now the Harold Lloyd box set. Any other additions are at the mercy of Lovefilm* I'm afraid though I will have a look and see if there's any Langdon available there.


* They'd best start sending me my high priority films as well. Don't be sending me Chaplin's 30's work when I need his 20's work goddammit.
