Silent Film. I just watched the Great Train Robbery last night. What more can you ask of an action flick? (ok maybe boobage) Dreams of a Rarebit Fiend is close to my heart. As far as golden era feature length silent film, Pandora's Box with Louise Brooks (on Criterion now) is very very good with a modern sensibility. Currently reading The Parade's Gone By by Browning---an interview based account of the great Silent Era (the copy I am reading is a first edition from the library [1968?] and I find that the crumbling volume is appropriate to the subject matter). Just the tip of the iceberg. I am hoping you can do all the posting for me on this one. Thank you, gentlemen!
