The Artist - Silents Please
22nd December, 2011
We are all waiting to see The Artist, this year's surprise small budget big hit. And everyone is talking about a film in which there is no talking. So what better time to remember the days when all films were silent. We have a nice selection of beautiful stone litho images on original posters from cinema's earliest days. We also have examples from silents made after the coming of sound. Most film fans will think of Chaplin's City Lights and Modern Times. Made in the thirties, but without talking. But who remembers another latter day silent movie? (The answer is in the images.....).
