One of my most favorite times of the year is here!! And of course that means I’ll be focusing on the spooky side of the silent era, the side with thrills, chills, and plenty of dramatic lighting.

  1. Halloween time is the best time. My interest and study of 1925 “Phantom of the Opera” is what drew me into silent film. The fact so much of it is lost is haunting in itself. My main interest has always been old horror movies but now I am researching a silent film flapper named Gladys Walton “Go Figure”.

    • Oooo, Phantom–one of those films that so many people who grew up with silents always remembered! That face reveal really scared the pants off people.

      I had a lot of fun writing my Gladys article, much luck with your research!

  2. The first silent horror movie I ever saw as a kid was the1922 Nosferatu on channel 2 public television and it scared the bejesus out of me. Suprisingly the first time anyone in america saw it was in 1929 at the dawn of sound and the copy was black and white not color tinted as it was originally. Buster with his fangs could be Dracula’s Daughter’s annoying kid brother always joking around. She would yell “Mom” !!! “Buster rigged my coffin to flip open at daylight”
