Do you enjoy watching movies from the silent film era?


I loved them when I was a kid, but in adulthood, I just don’t have the patience to watch one all the way through. I get bored waiting for the next text to come up.

    Wow. You never saw an early Charlie Chaplin or WC Fields film?

      Really? If I remember correctly, you’re the same person who had never heard of the film noir genre before I mentioned it in a question that I posted, right?

    I still feel like I've never heard of it, so I'm not sure.

    I remember seeing snippets (Charlie Chaplin, probably) and absolutely hating them.

    The silent film era was roughly 1894-1929. Most 1930s films had sound.

      Then at least some silent films were still being produced and released in the 1930s, correct?

    There was one made as recently as 1976.
