Considered one of the most important films in the history of silent pictures, as well as possibly Eisenstein's greatest work, Battleship Potemkin brought Eisenstein's theories of cinema art to the world in a powerful showcase; his emphasis on montage, his stress of intellectual contact, and his treatment of the mass instead of the individual as the protagonist. The film tells the story of the mutiny on the Russian ship Prince Potemkin during the 1905 uprising.

A selection of some of the earliest silent films. They are unidentified, but the first, The Car, looks like it came from Melies while the second, The Derby, is probably from the Lumiere Brothers. There is a paper print from Edison, and a very telling shot of Tsar Nicholas and entourage parading in front of the peasants in 1911. His days were numbered at that time.

The Electric House starts with Buster's graduation ceremony as the first of his comic misfortunes, including a mix-up of diplomas so Buster receives a diploma in electrical engineering. This leads to a job opportunity: electrifying the family house of the girl he's sweet on. A great chance, so Buster studies hard and soon installs a useful and impressive set of electric appliances.

Director D.W. Griffith's expensive, most ambitious silent film masterpiece Intolerance (1916) is one of the milestones and landmarks in cinematic history. Many reviewers and film historians consider it the greatest film of the silent era. The mammoth film was also subtitled: "A Sun-Play of the Ages" and "Love's Struggle Throughout the Ages." Griffith was inspired to make this film after watching the revolutionary Italian silent film epic Cabiria (1914) by director Giovanni...

This gut busting comedy, starring Buster Keaton, charmingly explores love in the three ages of life - the prehistoric age, the roman age, and the modern age. Throughout the years, where love is concerned, does anything really change? You can read more about this film on its IMDb page . Enjoy!

February in the United States celebrates "Black History Month" and thus this offering by Oscar Micheaux..."Within Our Gates" [1920]. It is a powerful narrative of an era long gone and exemplifies the ugliness of racial prejudice, injustice, and philosophically the collective conscience of mob mentality and loss of identity. Wikipedia... Within Our Gates (1920) is a silent race film that dramatically expresses the racial situation in America during the violent years of Jim...

The Avenging Conscience was directed by D.W. Griffith in 1914. It is 50 minutes long, a step in Griffith's progressive move into feature films. His next film was to me his controversial masterpiece, Birth of a Nation. This film is based on writings of Edgar Allen Poe, it is Victorian and sentimental but it is also quite visual. Rather than be a spoiler I will let the story tell itself. I have added music and sound effects, and I may have gone a bit overboard myself as you will see if you watch...

The Night Before Christmas. Here, just in time for Christmas is the Clement Wood poem as produced by the Edison Studios in 1908. It is backed mostly by old cylinder recordings from the same studio and period. It was kind of fun put them together...all from the Archive.
