Where's the Music?
A few weeks ago a movie fan wrote me a note asking a question about the pre-talking movies that I am adding to the site. He wondered what happened to the original music that usually plays as the silent picture is rolling along. He had never experienced a silent motion picture that wasn't accompanied by period music, and thought that the music was part of the original film that the movie companies produced. I explained that some of the first silent pictures that I added to the site did indeed include music from the copies that I could obtain, but as my love for the earliest motion pictures increased I decided one day that from that time forward I would show silent movies the way the early studios filmed them and presented them to the world . . . silently. Of course many of the larger motion picture theaters would hire a pianist or organist to play music during the show, but I think this might have been more as a cover for the audience chatting, laughter and normal crowd noises . . . you see, when there is no sound on a movie there is no reason for the audience to remain silent . . . your neighbor would not shush you for chomping on your popcorn too loudly, or for that snorting laugh that you sometimes bellow out. It wasn't until sound movies that motion picture audiences were forced to remain 'library-quiet' during the show. In addition to experiencing the show the way the studios created it, even in today's media-saturated environment there are times when I want to watch a good story but I am in a place where the sounds of a motion picture would annoy those around me, and a good silent picture is just right. And if you must have sound around you for any reason, it is easy enough to add sound from any of your media devices to mask the sound of munching your white kernel popcorn with warm melted butter drizzled over it as you enjoy the show.

Some of my Favorites:
Probably my all time favorite movie, My Man Godfrey in 1936 not only gives us an comedic peek at the wealthiest and poorest during the Great Depression, but also was the vehicle for Carole Lombard to create the movie icon of the 'dumb blonde screwball comedy' that is a popular theme even today.
Meet John Doe - 1941: The Frank Capra classic set in the Great Depression era that pits the common man against the political masters. You can't be a fan of old movies until you watch Frank Capra's old movies. This one premiered seventy years ago, and it still stirs our emotions and thoughts now. It is as timely as if it were produced today.
The Time of Your Life - 1948: James Cagney financed this strangely different feel-good movie, and he plays the part of Joe, a barfly that tries to live his life by making everyone around him better. I watch this one often, and try to become more like Joe every day.
Painted Faces - 1929: Comedy legend Joe E. Brown is a circus clown in a surprisingly serious role as a juror in a Christmas week murder trial who tells the other jurors a story that will change their verdicts in a pre-code drama that could not have been made a few years later.
Charade - 1963: It doesn't get much better than Cary Grant and Audry Hepburn in a tale of death, deception, spies and lost wealth as a woman tries to sort out the good guys from the bad guys in this cold-war spy thriller love story.
