Overview

Thanks to DVD, a great number of silent films and early talkies are now available for home viewing. In fact, so many of these wonderful movies can now be purchased, rented or borrowed by classic motion picture fans that an up-to-date reference work to the best (and the middling and the worst) has become essential. In this comprehensive guide, fans and enthusiasts will find not only familiar titles like Lon Chaney's "Phantom of the Opera" or Douglas Fairbanks' "Thief of Bagdad" or Harold Lloyd's "Safety Last"; but the less familiar "Down to the Sea in Ships" (starring a young Clara Bow), "Evangeline" (Dolores Del Rio), "Stella Dallas" (Belle Bennett), "Monsieur Beaucaire" (Rudolph Valentino), Ford Sterling's "The Show-Off", and Al Jolson's "Big Boy", to mention just a few of the many hundreds of titles detailed in this massive book. 440 pages of insightful text! Over 110 wonderful photos!
