Introduction A movie blog celebrating the late silent movies and early talkies. My goal is to educate, entertain and spread some light on a sadly forgotten era of entertainment. It's so sad so few of these movies are preserved for us to enjoy. About 75% of all the movies from the years 1925-35 are lost forever. The early musicals made in color before 1934 have an even greater loss-percentage. Some actors and actresses work has almost been totally erased due to this.
