The Rest Is Silents
In 1926, silent film was at its height. Little did they know....
Let's see Jesse Walker's top ten from that year (and I think I know what will be #1):
2. Now You Tell One
3. A Page Of Madness
4. The Overcoat
6. Love's Berry
8. The Adventures Of Prince Achmed
9. Mighty Like A Moose
10. Le Voyage Imaginaire
The General should definitely be #1. I like Mother and The Adventures Of Prince Achmed. Mighty Like A Moose is a short (a lot of comedy shorts back then). The rest--a number of which are shorts--I haven't seen.
There are a number of other titles worth mentioning from that year, even if they're not always easy to see.
Other films that would make my top ten:
It's The Old Army Game (for a guy known for his voice, W. C. Fields' silent films aren't bad)
Moana (the original)
So This Is Paris
So's Your Old Man (another decent Fields film)
The Strong Man (probably Langdon's best)
Other films that I like:
For Heaven's Sake (maybe Harold Lloyd's worst silent feature, but still pretty good)
Tramp Tramp Tramp
Other films Of Note:
Beau Geste, The Black Pirate, The Blackbird, La Boheme, Don Juan, Ella Cinders, Faust, Flesh And The Devil, Kid Boots, Lazybones, Nana, One Sunday Morning, Our Daily Bread, The Road To Glory, The Road To Mandalay, The Show Off, The Son Of The Shiek, Twinkletoes, Upstage, What Price Glory?, A Woman Of The Sea
