A love letter, and a chronicle. Silents, Please! focuses on silent cinema and silent film history, illustrated plentifully with film stills and animated gifs.
I follow the road less travelled in silent film, generally looking at interesting flotsam & jetsam of the silent era rather than the Hollywood canon. Some of my main interests include: women on the silent screen; Italian diva films and Italian silent cinema in general; pre-Revolutionary Russian cinema; experimental films; cinema of the teens; and films celebrating 100 years of age. This blog started out as a relatively casual place for film commentary, but has increasingly become more research-focused.
