Thanks Christopher

Looking forward to seeing these that everyone has mentioned. Amazing how entertaining these movies are with no sound. Ive heard mostly about Chaplin. But I?m planning on seeking out some Buster Keaton movies. From what I?ve read about him and from what y?all are saying sounds like he?s a tremendous silent era actor. Several yrs ago back when my cable tv had the TCM channel they showed some silent movies. At first I didn?t care for them. Cause I?m so use to movies with sound. But after watching a few I started liking them. Something different and there actually pretty funny and entertaining. And you get to see what people in the 20s and 30s watched back then.

The nice thing about Eastwood's career is that he's done so many different type of movies, there's potentially something for everyone. And I agree that In the Line of Fire could be a great one to introduce someone to Eastwood.

That's an interesting list. I still haven't watched J. Edgar, so I guess I really oughta pop the disc in sometime (I have it in a 4-movie set). I like that they include Breezy.

Strike and The Passion of Joan of Ark are two that stick out to me from a film class I took in college. I enjoy Buster Keaton too. I don't think I've seen any Chaplin movies.

My all-time favorite silent movie is Metropolis. One of my favorite movies of any era, and I've seen it multiple times and I even have a large movie poster for it. Another great silent movie no one's mentioned is Sunrise. The General is great for its stunts but it doesn't do much for me and I like other Keaton films better, like Steamboat Bill, Jr. and Sherlock Jr. I haven't seen very many more of his films, though. I love Chaplin and you can't go wrong with him. City Lights and Modern Times are masterpieces but while mostly silent movies, they were made after the silent era had ended. And The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari was probably the first silent movie I watched and I loved it instantly and still do. A really great, underappreciated silent movie is The Phantom Carriage, kind of a dark fantasy horror film with great effects. It was apparently Ingmar Bergman's favorite film and it contains a scene that certainly influenced Kubrick's "Here's Johnny" scene in The Shining.

If you like Gold Rush, I'd go with City Lights (also Chaplin) and another Chaplin favorite of mine is Modern Tmes. I also like Harold Lloyd's Safety Last.

Thanks Grant

Yeah seems like Chaplin and Keaton were the two biggest stars back then. Ive read great things about The Gold Rush. And also Buster Keaton?s The General. The General looks pretty good. Have you seen either one of those Gant?  And thanks for replying.
