Buster Keaton’s Our Hospitality was released on November 19, 1923. I’m pretty sure I don’t need to tell you anything more than its BUSTER KEATON.

Raggedy Rose is a cute little silent comedy from 1926 starring Mabel Normand. Rose works for a cheap-skate junk dealer and dreams of romance with a wealthy bachelor. I say: who doesn’t, sister? There’s not a lot that’s truly special about Raggedy Rose. Except that Mabel is always charming. And except that it was co-written […]

The Headless Horseman starring Will Rogers was released November 5, 1922. While this wouldn’t be the last film adaptation of Washington Irving’s “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow”, it is the earliest that I can rustle up. In this version, the sleepy town of Sleepy Hollow is prepping for the arrival of new school master Ichabod […]

The earliest surviving Stan Laurel movie and the first film he made with Hal Roach, the silent Just Rambling Along, was released on November 3, 1918. The story is what you might expect – a nice boy gets into scrapes until he meets a pretty gal – who gets him into the biggest scrape at […]

The Speed Kings, a silent short starring Mabel Normad, was released on October 30, 1913. It features some excellent footage of early autoracing and an angry papa trying to keep Mabel away from a bad boy race car driver.

Hold on to your hearts ladies, The Sheik was released on October 30, 1921. Why so close to Halloween? Because Rudolph Valentino was scary sexy, that’s why! Okay, all kidding aside. Rudolph Valentino is well, Rudolph Valentino and The Sheik is a Valentino vehicle. The plot is a bit complicated, but let’s just say it’s […]

The Golem was made by Paul Wegener, but… it was directed by Carl Boese and Wegener, […]

The Extra Girl, produced by Mack Sennett and starring Mabel Normand, was released on October 28, 1923. It’s one of the earlier movies about the movies, with a focus on the barely born Southern California movie making industry, yet we’ve still got the innocent girl trying to make it big kind of cliches in play.
