The “Silent Era” would have been my era, if I had not been born 40 years to late, I am a lost 1920’s girl at heart, born into a time I do not truly understand, if I had have been born then I doubt I would have been an actress, or anything like that, I have the feeling I would probably have been a gangsters moll, who died too early and well before her time.
Silent movies are my passion, Broken Blossoms is my favorite film from that era, it is the story of innocent love Lillian Gish and Richard Barthelmess are undoubtedly two of the most beautiful people I have ever seen on-screen together, corny in this day and age, but I like corny, Donald Crisp, is the villain and he does make a good one.
You can watch Broken Blossoms HERE if you do have look please feel free to come back and let me know if you liked it or not.
I will be adding to and up-dating this post later if any one is interested, because we can not have the Silent Era lost in the crowd now can we?
It has taken me 3 hours to work out how to add a gallery, what a job that was.
