H- Cinema - The Early Days
What it is: We are a group of devotees of the silent screen (with occasional forays into early ‘talkies’).
Whilst we are not quite old enough for the marvellous films we find to be nostalgia, it is a revelation to come across so many excellent dramas, adventures, comedies, and even horror films!
We dispel the myth that ‘silent films’ are synonymous with comic actors, though we have certainly enjoyed the classics of Chaplin, Keaton, and Lloyd.
We have looked at several films by chosen directors (Dreyer, Murnau) and the great stars: Douglas Fairbanks, Lillian Gish and Conrad Veidt.
