Classics of the Silent Screen: A Pictorial Treasury
By Joe Franklin
Publisher: The Citadel Press
1971 5th Printing Trade Sized paperback edition
Probably the "first" film book most movie fans ever saw or had.
This is an enthusiastic book which explores the cream-of-the-crop of silent films - including 75 players selected from hundreds, 50 films selected from thousands. They have all been chosen because, in one way or another, they are great. Basically, this book is two things. Firstly, it is indirectly a rough history of the silent movies as seen through the films that were either the greatest artistic triumphs or the greatest box office wins. Secondly, it is a rich sampling of many of the highspots of the silent era-rich enough I hope to bring back happy memories those who remember, and to stimulate interest and an eagerness to see them.
Some of the films explored include: The Great Train Robbery * The Birth of a Nation * The Mark of Zorro * Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde * Nanook of the North * The Last of the Mohicans * Peter Pan * Sherlock Jr. * The Phantom of the Opera * Don Juan * The Hunchback of Notre Dame * The Covered Wagon * Sunrise * Ben Hur * Seventh Heaven * Stella Dallas * The Lost World * The Crowd * and The Ten Commandments, plus more!
