I'm amazed that 1,965 people have checked "Les Vampires." A seven-hour silent film. Really? Maybe it's just about the people who systematically plow through whatever is on a lot of official lists.

This silent movie boasts some amazing German Expressionism sets that rival Caligari in their oddness (see above) and the nightmarish final segment (with Jack the Ripper) is great, but the film mostly feels like a lost opportunity. While frequently cited as a horror flick, it is only the final episode that crosses any such territory; the other two tales are fairly dull and run at least four times as long as the Jack the Ripper one. But Conrad Veidt is great.

And that should give me one film for every year in the 1920s decade. One bonus challenge done; two to go...

Well, 13 lists is certainly a draw, but it's serialized, so it's not a 7-hour block you have to sit though. And since it counts for 7 points under normal official challenge rules, it's a relatively productive watch. I've seen it crop up quite a few times during challenges I've hosted. Of course, that doesn't speak to the other 1950 checks... :lol:

A silent melodrama about a ne'er-do-well who proves his worth as he adopts a baby girl and serves in the war, this film benefits from a touching lead performance by Buck Jones, yet is mostly memorable for a left-of-field plot turn in the final 20 minutes. The plot turn comes from taboo territory and therefore it is intriguing to see such an early film dealing with the subject, but confining the topic until the final quarter does not really do it justice.

This is my loud scream into the silent era. Been saving up, so this is what's come my way the last 5 months of so. As I've seen so many silent films before, this becomes a more obscure list of films than your usual suspects for such challenges as this. I bundled all the shorts into one. 14 hours worth = 14 points.

I'll now have a deeper search through the years to see if I can find more (Just did so for the talkie years I've already been through, and still found 200 I'd not yet seen!). Doubt there will be too much to find for the silent era, but I can always hope. I'll let you know if I come across any big obscure vaults of online silents so that I don't dump another large list like this out of nowhere if I'm gonna be a #1 contender.

TOTAL: 840min = 14 hrs/points/films



15. Richard III (1912, André Calmettes & James Keane) - 4/10
--- Not to be confused with the British film Richard III (1911), which is under half an hour long. Richard III (1912) is the French-American adaptation which came a year later, and which runs closer to an hour. A solid and half-way a impressive production for the time. Only-halfway, though, as it lacks that little bit extra to really dazzle you, and the acting doesn't do all that much to enhance the experience. Only serviceable and respectable for the parts played. Same can be said about the film as a whole.


16. L'empreinte de la patrie (1915, M. Dumeny) - 2/10
--- Didn't engage. A rather standard European style production from the mid-teens with a war theme, keeping things stagnant with no added thrills. Not terrible, but just nothing special at all.


17. Fanchon, the Cricket (1915, James Kirkwood) - 5/10
--- Most of Mary Pickford's films relied heavily on her being super cute. And that's not a bad thing, as she was a incredibly effective screen persona that way. However, in Fanchon, the Cricket (1915) there is too much of her strutting around and looking adorable. The story doesn't seem to move a lot of the time with her bouncing around in the bushes and fields so much. That doesn't mean it's a bad experience. It's a pleacer for sure, just a little aimless at times. It helps that they did a really nice restoration job on this one and we can feel happy that the one feature she appeared together with her two siblings Jack & Lottie was not lost as originally thought.


18. Broadway Love (1918, Ida May Park) - 4/10
--- Broadway Love (1918) starts out fresh enough with some very flapper moments, and continues nicely with a handsome(!!!!) young Lon Chaney turning into a nasty sleaze. Then it kind of drifts without impressing much. Alright and that kind of reaction, but it could have easily been much better in handling it's story.


19. The Beloved Blackmailer (1918, Dell Henderson) - 4/10
--- The first film I see of the once popular screen pair Carlyle Blackwell & Evelyn Greeley. Actually, this is the first time I've ever seen Greeley. The two even starred in the first Bulldog Drummond movie back in 1922. Before that, they appeared in The Beloved Blackmailer (1918) together. One that plays a lot of the time almost as a college comedy, even if it's about manipulating their parents in some odd way. Not sure I liked the plot, but the people were mildly amusing, especially the comical looking Ivor Novello-lookalike Blackwell.


20. Rose-France (1919, Marcel L'Herbier) - 5/10
--- This was from a younger and more artistic Marcel L'Herbier. His feature debut as a director. Not as refined as his style would become, but there is a ambitious tone to Rose-France (1919) which makes it a fascinating piece. Rich in expression.


21. È piccerella [The Little Girl] (1922, Elvira Notari) - 6/10
--- A sneaky and expressive Italian silent!


22. Das alte Gesetz [This Ancient Law] (1923, Ewald André Dupont) - 6/10
--- A 'The Jazz Singer' type story, with a Rabbi's son wanting to become a stage actor, and if you've seen that one, you know how heavy a religious father's wrath can be and the challenges a young adult has deciding his own path in a conservative environment. Elegantly crafted by Ewald André Dupont, with very elaborately constructed scenes and quality acting. Unfortunately the story moves too slowly loosing it's emotional impact in the process. But it's a creation well worth watching if you have the patience for long silent films.


23. Fox Farm (1922, Guy Newall) - 4/10
--- At first this romantic melodrama with married director/stars Guy Newall & Ivy Duke wasn't grabbing me. Once the guy's bad luck started creeping in it got a little better and the drama had more of a purpose. Not a super fan of it, but it ended up creating some emotion with it's simple style.


24. The Wonderful Story (1922, Graham Cutts) - 5/10
--- British films pre-Hitchcock isn't that much talked about, and with good reason. The productions were often pretty simple with not a lot of attention to detail. Instead it feels like they did a lot of dramas which relied mainly on the source material, rather than the visual aspect of the story. So while not spectacular, The Wonderful Story (1922) is one of those pictures which lives strongly off it's simplicity and becomes a solid emotional encounter because of I.A.R. Wylie's novel. The acting is adequate, but not of the standing-out kind. Just respectable, like it's writing. A story which I felt I got something out of, and which came out well on screen without too much effort from the serviceable director Graham Cutts doing his first ever directorial job.


25. Secrets (1924, Frank Borzage) - 5/10
--- Better than Mary Pickford's swansong, Secrets (1933), but the original silent version does have it's issues. Much of it related to footage missing. But even if we're missing a lot of it's story for the full experience, Norma Talmadge herself was pretty good in Secrets (1924). Big star at the time. Always a solid actress, though never amazing. As far as I've seen, anyway. But this was a good showcase for her.


26. The Speed Spook (1924, Charles Hines) - 4/10
--- A quick and speedy motor vehicle story. Chaotic and loose. Too loose at times. Helps it be fun and full of energy, but at the same time it become highly irrelevant because it's all over the place. But since it's meant to be a fast paced humorous B-movie, and not a life changing experience, it does the trick.


27. Le diable dans la ville [The Devil in the City] (1925, Germaine Dulac) - 5/10
--- A lot of the time this felt like it was going to be a better film than it ended up being. In other words, I liked a lot about the absurd religious toned creatures that roamed this story. The characters were the key thing to love. Just sad the story never really engaged me in the same way. I've never really been a big fan of Germaine Dulac's work, but this one is among her best, only after La cigarette (1919), IMO.


28. You Never Know Women (1926, William A. Wellman) - 6/10
--- Two of Hollywood's slickest men fighting over Florence Vidor with some dirty tricks thrown in. Got to love the play going on between Clive Brook & Lowell Sherman! The climax was well-fitting to the way the game plan that was going on. Very smooth silent! Perhaps even better than I give it credit for.


29. The Desert of the Lost (1927, Richard Thorpe) - 5/10
--- I'm familiar with Hal Taliaferro as a bit player in countless low budget westerns in the 1930s, but not so when it comes to his time as a leading cowboy in the silent era, when he went under the name Wally Wales. I must say, I liked what I saw. He was a energetic and realistic screen cowboy here in The Desert of the Lost (1927)! I would even say he came across better than most of his contemporary western stars from that time! Real surprising. The film however, was your average and generic western movie. One good thing is that low budget westerns of the silent era come across a lot better than the low budget oaters that came with sound. So this one was actually thrilling at times, and with "Wally Wales" giving it his all, this was a positive oater, for sure.


30. Dawn (1928, Herbert Wilcox) - 5/10
--- Dawn (1928) is a film about the heroics of Nurse Edith Cavell during World War I. Some high-profiled American's criticized the British for making this during peacetime as they were trying to mend the relationship with the German's. However, a decade later Hollywood did their own version of Edith Cavell's adventures at the dawn of World War II, which even earned a Oscar nomination. So... yeah... I don't remember much about the 1939 movie, and the UK silent from 1928 felt like it could have the same issues. Highly respectable work and acting, but not necessarily of the memorable kind. Yet, it does the trick in building itself up for a solid climax and a satisfying experience.


31. The Pace That Kills (1928, William A. O'Connor & Norton S. Parker) - 4/10
--- The original 1928 silent version of the famous exploitation film The Pace That Kills (1935), aka The Cocaine Fiends. And right off the bat, one can tell the silent version is a lot better than the more widely available sound alternative. It's still a fairly cheap and cringy experience, but this felt a lot more at home in the silent style of film making. At least some of the more embarrassing aspects where better hidden away, and you can focus on it more as a typical B-drama of that time.


32. Die Abenteurer G.m.b.H. [Adventures Inc.] (1929, Fred Sauer) - 4/10
--- Time for some early Agatha Christie, apparently. Among the first of her work to be made for the big screen. A germanized version of her novel The Secret Adversary. And it's pretty slick, but I didn't exactly get sucked into the adventure of things. Some of that was due to only French and Germany intertitles being available to me. Still cool to see a silent Agatha Christie story. There weren't many of those made.


33. Korkein voitto [The Highest Prize] (1929, Carl von Haartman) - 4/10
--- Carl von Haartman returns to his home country from a stint in Hollywood where he would mainly play uncredited bit parts. Apparently that was enough to give him full control to make Korkein voitto (1929) as director, writer, editor and STAR! Actually, visually it was quite soothing, but the story left a lot to be desired. Overall, fine and unspectacular. Mostly unspectacular, though.


34. Svatý Václav [St. Wenceslas] (1930, Jan S. Kolár) - 4/10
--- Ambitious, for sure! The lack of subtitles hurt the experience for me, though. Doesn't stop this bring being a very lively battle. The sets were the most interesting from a visual point-of-view. Some resembling German Expressionism, others just bad. Difficult to really get a good feel of it, especially when not being a Czech.


35. Jack (I) (1913, André Liabel) - 3/10
--- Has it's share of tragedies, but I'm not sure the early-1910 melodrama styles does it any favors. At least the story tries to be dramatic, even if the movie as a whole doesn't feel like it.


36. Le roman d'un caissier (1914, Emile Chautard) - 2/10
--- Antiquated drama. Literally!


37. Daytime Wives (1923, Emile Chautard) - 4/10
--- I quite liked Daytime Wives (1923) with all it's jealousy and all that marriage drama. Thought it was well presented. Unfortunately with so many silents, there are missing bits that do not survive. Sadly this time it was the ending. The final reel. Rather frustrating, but I won't take away the quality this did possess for the first 6 reels.


38. Enemies of Women (1923, Alan Crosland) - 4/10
--- Lionel Barrymore was nasty and unlikable as the womanizing prince. Oozed of sleaze at times. Grotesque, even. Was so weird watching this skinny version of Lionel sword fight too, having seen him in so many of his later wheelchair pictures in recent years. I'm not sure is this was a good picture of not, but it certainly had some odd appeal.


39. The Arab (1924, Rex Ingram) - 4/10
--- Not as creepy as Ramon Novarro's sound remake, The Barbarian (1933). But at the same time, the print I got was the Russian one without translations. Felt like a okay picture. Not an amaing one, but Navarro had the presence during those days and the production looked ambitious. Hope I find a better version one day.


40. The Fighting Coward (1924, James Cruze) - 5/10
--- The Fighting Coward (1924) is a charming silent comedy, which was remade at least twice in the early talkies as The River of Romance (1929) and most notably with Bing Crosby in Mississippi (1935). And it's pretty much on par with that one, except with silent charms instead of that Bing 'n singing. Cullen Landis has the lead as the passive-turned-dangerous man, so that he can win young Mary Astor's heart, 18 at the time. The highlight for me was more the villains Ernest Torrence & Noah Beery being wonderfully hammy heels. Exactly what the story needed!

I'll now have a deeper search through the years to see if I can find more (Just did so for the talkie years I've already been through, and still found 200 I'd not yet seen!). Doubt there will be too much to find for the silent era, but I can always hope. I'll let you know if I come across any big obscure vaults of online silents so that I don't dump another large list like this out of nowhere if I'm gonna be a #1 contender.
To save you some of the search, in this playlist https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=P ... vxaP8h8Ooa is three movies I am the only check (Australia Prepared, The Digger Carries On and Those Terrible Twins) that I'm assuming you haven't seen.

For others the above playlist are Australian silent movies I have found on YouTube. If anyone knows of anymore I would love to add them and plus maybe watch them yourselves. (maybe it would have been a good idea to post this at the beginning of this challenge :facepalm: )

Best known for its thrilling final 20 minutes of building scaling, there is actually much more to Safety Last!. The climax is merely the culmination of his character progression as he is finally forced to keep his word after an hour of the bribing, cheating and tricking others - including his fiancée. Much of the earlier events had me laughing harder than the big climb too; Lloyd getting back his bribe from a wastepaper bin is a particular standout.

Directed by Lois Weber. Kind of an odd morality tale - thought provoking and worth rewatching.

While it is more fun to watch Harold Lloyd play cunning and conniving in Safety Last! rather than gullible and easily misled as per here, it is still easy to see why this is oft regarded as Lloyd's next best film. There are some simply exquisite shots (his love interest's face appearing in a cleaned up mirror) and several funny routines, most notably a rip-apart outfit at a fancy dinner. The sport game finish is also fine, if not as thrilling as scaling a building.

Less fresh and funny upon revision, this Buster Keaton comedy has some great moments (running away from a miniature cannon; see above) but like most of Keaton's features, the project comes off as a series skits better suited to the short film format. There is a great part in which Keaton and his lead actress scurry about a rat maze of a ship in long distance and some of the tilting camerawork is pretty neat, but this impressed me less this time.

This Buster Keaton effort still feels like one of his weaker features for the same reason as Battling Butler: it is based on someone else's stage play and full of comedy that does not play to Keaton's forte. The chase-heavy final quarter of the movie is certainly quite magnificent, but the rest of the movie is burdened by excesses of dialogue and awkward situations that are sometimes amusing but which rarely give Keaton a chance to strut his stuff.

I'll now have a deeper search through the years to see if I can find more (Just did so for the talkie years I've already been through, and still found 200 I'd not yet seen!). Doubt there will be too much to find for the silent era, but I can always hope. I'll let you know if I come across any big obscure vaults of online silents so that I don't dump another large list like this out of nowhere if I'm gonna be a #1 contender.
To save you some of the search, in this playlist https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=P ... vxaP8h8Ooa is three movies I am the only check (Australia Prepared, The Digger Carries On and Those Terrible Twins) that I'm assuming you haven't seen.

For others the above playlist are Australian silent movies I have found on YouTube. If anyone knows of anymore I would love to add them and plus maybe watch them yourselves. (maybe it would have been a good idea to post this at the beginning of this challenge :facepalm: )
Thanks a bundle for those! I doubt I would have found those, so that was a welcome dive into Australian cinema. Especially Those Terrible Twins had it's moments.



41. The White Outlaw (1929, Robert J. Horner) - 4/10
--- A little too much reading (it's a silent movie) for what's supposed to be a action western, but otherwise not too bad considering it's starring one of the less remembered cowboy stars of the day, Art Acord. Follows a familiar formula and hardly brings anything new to the western genre, but Acord has his unique charm giving The White Outlaw (1929) some personality.


42. The Ocean Waif (1916, Alice Guy) - 4/10
--- The Ocean Waif (1916) is not going to be among my favorite Alice Guy films. I struggled to get into it at first, for the start didn't really capture my imagination the way I'd hoped. The intensity did increase toward it's climax, and that helped the viewing a great deal. The Ocean Waif still remains slightly damaged, but Kino did a fine job preserving it.


43. The Night of Love (1927, George Fitzmaurice) - 6/10
--- Gypsy's revenge! A noble man tries to rape Ronald Colman's girl, but she kills herself before he can do the act. This naturally doesn't make the exotic gentleman happy, and he vows revenge wanting to do the same to the noble man's girl. And that's premise of this trash literature romance adventure. For of course Ronald can't do such an evil act, especially not to such a beauty as Vilma Bánky. But the more rougher Coleman made it a little more vibrant than his other romances.


44. Gilan qizi [Gilan’s Daughter] (1928, A.V. Bixovski & Leo Mur) - 4/10
--- It always intrigues me when coming across movies from Soviet era Azerbaijan. Often the movies are quite good too (there are a few stinkers too, don't get me wrong). Azerbaijan film making was part of the Soviet machine, yet it is it's own thing, with it's own exotic look. Gilan qizi [Gilan’s Daughter] (1928) does have a lot of appeal. Of course, the lack of translation hurts following the story a little bit, but in this case things are fairly easy to comprehend. It was certainly a lot easier to watch than I had feared. Does some cool things, but naturally it's not up there with the great Soviet movies of the time. Still a unique little war experience.


45. The House of Shame (1928, Burton L. King) - 4/10
--- Hardly a revolutionary adultery drama, but it's serviceable with a few sparks here and there. Decent role for long-time bit player Creighton Hale. Same can be said for Virginia Brown Faire, who's probable best known today for standing besides some of the top cowboys in the business in those early B-westerns of the sound era.


46. Sweeney Todd (1928, Walter West) - 4/10
--- The earliest surviving adaptation of Sweeney Todd (1928). Starring none other than Moore Marriott! The old bald dude in Will Hay comedies! And it was a entertaining version. Unfortunately they eliminated most of the horror elements of the tale, which was a big shame. Made me appreciate Tod Slaughter's Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (1936) a whole lot more. Still cool to witness Marriott in such a grotesque role!


47. The Thirteenth Hour (1927, Chester M. Franklin) - 5/10
--- Most of what I've read about The Thirteenth Hour (1927) has been negative, but I enjoyed it. Sure, it's silly cold school horror, but that's what makes it so entertaining. Doesn't matter if the cops are dumb or that there is a stupid lady stumbling around in this old dark house doing slapstick. For it's more or less a horror parody, adding a Rin Tin-Tin like dog for even more absurdity. A farce, with laughs and suspense. Very much suited for Lionel Barrymore ugly mug!


48. Australia Prepared (1916, J. and N. Tait) - 2/10
--- It's a basic war documentary. Not one with battles and all that (though there are some brief staged scenes at the end). Nope. One which shows troops training and preparing for going to war. That, along with other war related stuff like manufacturing weapons and what not. More like a pro-war video to get people hyped for going overseas. Not really one that's very interesting today. At least it shows that there was a strong effort from Australia to partake in World War 1.


49. The Sign of Four (1923, Maurice Elvey) - 6/10
--- Sherlock Holmes was alive and kicking in the silent era. The Eille Norwood led The Sign of Four (1923) beats the boots off the first sound adaptation of the same story that came out in 1932! The silent version is so ambitious that it almost becomes too intricate for the silent format. I would have loved a proper soundtrack to the scenes to get more out of the experience, but with so much going it didn't really matter. A thrilling entry to the silent Sherlock library of films.


50. The Road to Mandalay (1926, Tod Browning) - 6/10
--- A large chunk of The Road to Mandalay (1926) is missing, with only 46 minutes of 70 in existence, but Lon Chaney's intensity here was so incredible that this is one to watch regardless of getting the full experience or not!


51. Der Geiger von Florenz [Impetuous Youth] (1926, Paul Czinner) - 5/10
--- Conventional father role for the often dangerous Conrad Veidt. Good to see him act normal too. Well, he's got his hands full handling Elisabeth Bergner as his spoiled brat. And she was a delight smoking her cigar. This is a simple looking family film. Not too exiting or anything. Just nice and easy.


52. Napoleon-gaz [Napoleon Gas] (1925, Semyon Timoshenko) - 3/10
--- Gas attack on Russia! Grueling situation, but unfortunately a little too much was lost on me about the entire story to truly appreciate this threat on Soviet.


53-57. The Power God (1925, Francis Ford & Ben F. Wilson) - 4/10 - 313min
--- A massive 5 hours plus silent serial called The Power God (1925)! No, it's not a exhausting religious movie. It's more a sci-fi experience of power, as in electricity. Mostly it's about action and the usual twists and turns they always fill these serials with. Quite good, but lacked that little extra imagination to take it to the next level.


58. Venus of the South Seas (1924, James R. Sullivan) - 3/10
--- I didn't think much of Venus of the South Seas (1924). I guess the attraction was the underwater filming. It's not of the erotic kind, which was what Annette Kellerman was known for, but more of the thrilling flavor. She was past her physical prime by this movie was made, which also ended up being her last feature, and also her only surviving picture. I guess that type of adventure was fairly unique back then, but I'm unsure if this one captures what made her so famous back then.


59. Deliverance (1919, George Foster Platt) - 5/10
--- The inspirational story of the deaf and blind Helen Keller, such a unique creation that the real Helen Keller herself makes a cameo! That gives this film a special place in movie history. The film isn't bad either. Solid drama considering it was made 100 years ago, and didn't seem to have the biggest of budgets. This wasn't made by any of the big ones in the business either, yet it becomes fascinating because of the subject.

That concludes what I've found searching the years 1929 and back to 1922, along with whatever side roads those searches have led me. I've found a additional 2 long films I've yet see. With 2 1/2 days remaining, we'll see what else I can dig up once I search 1921 and into the teens. I'm a little surprised at the amount of new stuff I've managed to find so far. Doesn't add up to too many films from each year, but as it's 3 decades to look through, it adds up regardless. Especially with the massive bundle of short films that's come available in recent time!

If not as fresh and funny upon revision, this is still probably Buster Keaton's best feature. While a couple of subplots add little to the narrative, the film tells a more solid and less episodic story than Keaton par - and the final few minutes are heartwarming. The whole thing is cleverly shot too, whether it be overhead photography to make a change rooms gag funnier, or an open set that allows us to watch Keaton run up and down multiple staircases.

Based on J.M. Barrie's The Admirable Crichton, this Cecil B. DeMille production has an amusing conceit, but DeMille never quite gets at the juice of the material by focusing mainly on a dull love triangle and giving inordinate amount of time to an Ancient Rome fantasy sequence. Lewis Gilbert's 1957 colour version of the tale is preferable, starring Kenneth More and Cecil Parker in career-best turns, but this is okay for a film of its vintage.

Now You Tell One has some pretty cool stop motion animation effects (a man disappearing under his coat; magically growing eggplants... and cats! -- see above); the story, however, seemed like a mere trifle and did not interest me half as much as the special effects.

Le Manoir du Diable has a lot of cool jump cut special effects as per Georges Méliès par and the bat transformations are pretty cool, but running at less than four minutes, it is expectedly insubstantial as any type of narrative.

The Girl and Her Trust is sadly a bit of a hard film to take seriously in this post-Chaplin era, what with the title character saying things like "help, tramps!". The film is also burdened by overly descriptive title cards that spell out what we can guess of the characters' feelings/motivations. Some good editing and tracking shots for a film of its vintage though.

Leaving Jerusalem by Railway has some cool moving photography for its time (presumably shot from a backwards moving train) but it is a lot less fun that the innovation that Méliès was showing in his movies of the same time.

While notable as Chaplin's first film in which he would play the Little Tramp, Kid Auto Races at Venice is unfortunately not all that funny. Shot at an actual go-kart race, the film simply consists of him constantly being pushed and thrown off the track as he keeps wandering in the way of other cameras that are trying to film the race.

Predating the James Whale version, the 1910 take on Frankenstein is pretty interesting with a very different (more ape-looking with long hair) monster to what we have come to associate with the tale. The whole thing is way too short though to have any sort of emotional impact.

Saturday Afternoon seems further proof to me that Harry Langdon was never as great as Keaton, Chaplin or Lloyd in his prime. There is a funny part towards the end in which Langdon sits between two moving cars without realising that they are moving (see above) but there only a handful of good chuckles here.

The Old Actor did nothing for me. The actor playing the actor was decent, but I couldn't care at all about the story and the filming was pretty bland.

Know Thy Wife was okay as far as cross-dressing comedies go. The short doesn't quite milk enough laughs from the guy's fiancée pretending to be his male best friend, but there are some amusing parts for sure.
