Doesn't count for challenge but of interest to silent film buffs:

Die Gebrüder Skladanowsky / A trick of light (Ger 95)

Film about some forgotten cinema pioneers (beaten out by Lumiere bros), made by Wim Wenders and his students. Part neo-silent film with voiceover, part documentary, quite funny in spots.

Based on an acclaimed Oscar Wilde play, this Ernst Lubitsch silent comedy is an odd melding of great minds. The film is nicely visualised by Lubitsch with an amusing shot in which the heads of three gossiping women one by one rise into frame, and great use of garden hedges to frame characters chatting at a distance (see above). The dialogue is, however, very limited to the point of plot murkiness. Casting May McAvoy as Irene Rich's daughter is a misstep too since the pair look about the same age (there was only eight years age difference between them).

Harry Langdon's first feature, though the biggest name here is Joan Crawford as his love interest and sadly given little to do. As for the overall movie, it tries to emulate the best of Keaton and Lloyd with daring stunts - most notably, hanging on a cliff by his belt buckle - and there are certainly some laughs as Langdon has to hop behind a train, slides down a fence and as putting up photos of Crawford causes chaos. With a highly episodic and rather random structure though, the film only really survives on its set pieces, of which the end cyclone is the best.

yes, it quite blew my mind how well Lubitsch pulled it off without Wilde's dialogue.

I just wish that I had seen another version of Lady Windermere's Fan before watching Lubitsch's version to help fill in some of the finer plot details. But yes, it was nice how Lubitsch managed to tell the story without relying too heavily on title cards.

The plot here is very episodic, but with a running theme of Linder finding more and more bad luck as he actively tries to avoid unlucky situations, the film feels cohesive from start to finish. It is very funny too with Linder pulling off the Duck Soup mirror gag (see above) with panache more than a decade before the Marx Brothers made the routine famous, Linder hilariously walking in sync with a stranger to avoid paying for a ticket, Linder inadvertently ripping a girl's blouse off with superglue, and the list goes on.

The plot here is very episodic, but with a running theme of Linder finding more and more bad luck as he actively tries to avoid unlucky situations, the film feels cohesive from start to finish. It is very funny too with Linder pulling off the Duck Soup mirror gag (see above) with panache more than a decade before the Marx Brothers made the routine famous, Linder hilariously walking in sync with a stranger to avoid paying for a ticket, Linder inadvertently ripping a girl's blouse off with superglue, and the list goes on. Added to my 500<400 ballot. :poshclap:
Max Linder is just so elegant in his execution of slapstick that I had to buy the French blu-ray set of his American movies (7 Years Bad Luck, Be My Wife, The Three-Must-Get-Theres plus Max Wants a Divorce). I hope to dive into it this month.

Sadly, he was another comedic genius lost to depression and suicide.

I immediately looked up Linder's filmography after finishing Seven Years Bad Luck and was disappointed to see how little else he done, and then saddened to find out that it was due to suicide. I might see what else from him I can find online to watch this month, though the iCM comments suggest that the full version of The Three-Must-Get-Theres is lost, and I'm unsure of the benefits of watching an incomplete film.

This British-German co-production was Alfred Hitchcock's first feature film and with a plot that involves murder, madness and duplicity many have tried to lump it with Hitch's signature pieces over the years. Alas, such themes are only ever side issues, and while there is some technical finesse with underwater shots, dissolve special effects, the occasional panning shot and an in/out of focus bit, such highs are few and far between. The performances are nothing to write home about either, but the costumes are quite dazzling at least.

7. Seven Years Bad Luck (1921)

Image

The plot here is very episodic, but with a running theme of Linder finding more and more bad luck as he actively tries to avoid unlucky situations, the film feels cohesive from start to finish. It is very funny too with Linder pulling off the Duck Soup mirror gag (see above) with panache more than a decade before the Marx Brothers made the routine famous, Linder hilariously walking in sync with a stranger to avoid paying for a ticket, Linder inadvertently ripping a girl's blouse off with superglue, and the list goes on. Added to my 500<400 ballot. :poshclap:
Max Linder is just so elegant in his execution of slapstick that I had to buy the French blu-ray set of his American movies (7 Years Bad Luck, Be My Wife, The Three-Must-Get-Theres plus Max Wants a Divorce). I hope to dive into it this month.

Sadly, he was another comedic genius lost to depression and suicide.
I immediately looked up Linder's filmography after finishing Seven Years Bad Luck and was disappointed to see how little else he done, and then saddened to find out that it was due to suicide. I might see what else from him I can find online to watch this month, though the iCM comments suggest that the full version of The Three-Must-Get-Theres is lost, and I'm unsure of the benefits of watching an incomplete film.
The version of The Three-Must-Get-Theres that I watched a couple months ago seemed like a fairly complete film, hitting all the plot points it seemed to intend to cover. Also, it was pretty dang funny too.

In this case, I'll take what I can get, incomplete or not. While I fully understand your take on it, so many films are "incomplete" (in one way or another) that we'd miss out on watching a lot of great classic movies if we "boycotted" them because they were incomplete or messed with in some other way (studio interference, revisionism later on by the director and so on).

I whole-heartedly agree. If this didn't have the name Hitchcock attached to it, nobody would bother watching it. It's just not interesting in and of itself. "Hitch" as we know and love him doesn't really start showing up until later (The Lodger, his next movie, has a couple of glimpses and The Ring isn't bad either, but then there's a long stretch where it just seems like his touches are nowhere to be seen until we get to The Maxman and Blackmail. Waltzes from Vienna is another low point).

6. Kohlhiesel's Töchter (aka. Kohlhiesel's Daughters)(Lubitsch, 1920). Oh, Lubitsch is getting into his stride here, with a lighthearted comedy starring Henny Porten in a double role as two very different sisters and Emil Jannings as the oaf who wants to marry the younger, prettier and nicer daughter but has to somehow get someone to marry the older, much cruder one.

I started watching Loves of a Pharao (Lubitsch and Jannings again, 1922), but the copy I have is not in a good condition (scratched, warped, wobbling and blown contrast) and I know there's a (supposedly beautifully restored) blu-ray version available, so I stopped it and I think I'll save up to buy the blu-ray (it's kinda pricey, $45 w/shipping). Maybe it'll be part of next year's challenge?

I haven't done a whole lot of research, but what appears available to me at the moment is a 37 minute version and a 54 minute version - but the latter with Russian inter-titles only.

That's a valid point for sure. I guess it's more a case that I would rather prioritise films that are available to me in complete form. So it's not so much a boycott, but a reordering of priorities.

I didn't mind The Ring or The Lodger at the time, but The Pleasure Garden was really subpar. I was hoping for something like Fear and Desire (i.e. a worthwhile film that its director only dismissed to his perfectionism) but alas The Pleasure Garden really is a mere stepping stone for the Master of Suspense. Have not seen Waltzes from Vienna, but I don't think it was really until the 1940s that Hitchcock starting making consistently great films.

Clocking in at just under 60 minutes, there is not a lot to the plot here with the film's best moments coming from lead actress Clara Bow dancing and prancing about while wearing very revealing costumes (see above). In the lead male role, Donald Keith is pretty bland. Lee Moran is great though as his hapless best friend and the film could have done with more scenes of the pair together, running into each other and scurrying about the place, but this was clearly always intended first and foremost as vehicle for The It Girl to strut her stuff.

I watched the 55 minute version with English intertitles and I'm very confused hearing some of it has been lost. It not only felt like a complete film, but is easily one of the best films of the 20s and possibly the best parody film ever made.

Blame Armo for making me think that the film only exists in incomplete form. Or maybe he was referring to that 37 minute version?

Another question for yourself (or anyone else): how familiar do I have to be with The Three Musketeers and/or the Douglas Fairbanks version to appreciate the Linder film?

Often cited as Langdon's best work, The Strong Man has a stronger (forgive the pun) and less random storyline than his debut film Tramp, Tramp, Tramp and while it has less of the daring stunts of Tramp except near the end, the film makes up for it with better characters. A cunning Gertrude Astor and Priscilla Bonner (playing blind) also deliver better rounded performances than Joan Crawford in Tramp. The film moves rather slowly whenever neither actress nor Langdon is on screen, but the film's explosive finale is well worth the wait.

3 1/2 hours of so-so action/adventure entertainment. The script isn't terrible (your usual casual racism, but that's to be expected given Thea Harbou's later association with the Nazi movement and the period the film was made in), but the direction was lackluster, I thought. Conrad Veidt reminded me a lot of Udo Kier for some reason.

9a. Out West (Arbuckle, 1918). 21 minutes
9b. The Bell Boy (Arbuckle, 1918). 25 minutes.
9c. Moonshine (Arbuckle, 1918). 18 minutes.

Arbuckle fun. Kinda meh, to be honest, I much prefer Keaton (who's costarring in these).

I don't participate as much as I would like to, since I also follow a film festival in Paris... Still, I managed to watch 1 silent film, and it became an instant favorite.

01. The Covered Wagon, by James Cruze (1923) 9/10

Spectacular, solidly written and acted, this film is the root of a subgenre among westerns. Praised to blurays and film restoration, this copy was gorgeous, and the film relies a lot on its visual.
