AKA, would you be interested in watching a film, maybe just to experience some cinematic history, if it was a silent film?

Do you have a particular film that you're thinking about? It is not a classic film, but "The Artist" was both black and white AND a silent film, so of course, I haven't seen it! I did have a friend who watched "The Artist" who said that they really enjoyed it. I don't know if I could get through a completely silent film though.

The closest I ever got to that was watching "All Is Lost," with Robert Redford, which had little to no dialogue, but there was sound since the film was about Robert Redford's battle, I think, to keep his ship from sinking.

I've been really bad about pretty much every movie club or movie challenge activity we've done on this board, but another possible title you might consider for a classics movie club could be The Invisible Man (1933). It's my favorite of all the old Universal monster movies.

Murnau? Griffith? Dreyer? Heck, even Buster Keaton?

Not a big fan of Chaplin's. Though, truth to tell, I'm not much a fan of silent films altogether, even the real "classics."

Do you have a particular film that you're thinking about?

Yes, I was actually thinking of a Chaplin film -- City Lights, which is one of the best movies I've ever seen. I've championed this film to others, and it has such broad appeal -- my parents loved it, people my age love it, and kids love it too.  It's hard not to love Chaplin -- and this is my favorite of his.  KC brought up some other great options, but another favorite of mine is Harold Lloyd, particularly Safety Last

Since the Movie Club is for sharing our appreciation of certain films with others who haven't yet seen them -- I think I would love to nominate at least one of these two films. They're really fun, and again -- it's amazing to step back in time and witness history.

Id like to start talking about this challenge again. Id prefer it to be pre 1970 films only.
