​Classics of the Silent Screen

The founders of the moving picture industry were a group of remarkably gifted inventors, artists, and technicians.  To appreciate their achievement today takes a willful viewer; part art lover, part history buff, he must not only seek out these seemingly strange films but educate himself in how to watch them as well.  The classics listed here reveal the varied and fascinating personalities and photoplays of the years from the earliest films to the advent of the sound screen.  Directors include D. W. Griffith, Cecil B. DeMille, John Ford, Charles Chaplin, Sergei Eisenstein, Fritz Lang, and the young Alfred Hitchcock.
