For people who both love silent movies and love to rank things, F.W. Murnau’s Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans consistently ranks number one. Pretty Clever Film Gal is not entirely on-board with that statement. While I also love silent movies and ranking things, I would bump Murnau’s other masterpiece The Last Laugh above Sunrise. […]

It feels like it’s been a very long week, friends and neighbors. Judging by the sheer volume of awesome silent and classic film writing cranked out by the interwebs this week, I’m beginning to think someone might have actually slipped an extra day in there. Now, as we sail into the pre-Halloween weekend, I hope […]

Summer is officially on in Toronto, friends and neighbors! The pools are open, the barbeques are fired, and the Cup finals are a wash (the Kings and the Rangers, puh-lease). And this if of course a perfect day for… sitting in a dark theatre or on a cozy couch and watching movies? Yes, yes it […]

  This weekend in Toronto is either a silent film fan’s greatest fantasy or her worst nightmare. Why? There’s not one, but two silent film screenings – on the same day!

This year the Toronto Silent Film Festival will present F.W. Murnau’s Tabu – A Take of the South Seas on March 30. All silent film fans know F.W. Murnau, master of German expressionism and power house of silent cinema. Wait a minute – did I just say German expressionism? That poster for Tabu doesn’t look […]

Let’s see, this week I hung out with animators, tried to burnish the image of death-by-suicide Joseph McDermott, whoever he may be, and I told the world how terrible John Carter is. Perhaps I should change my name to Pretty Busy Gal. Now, I know what you’re thinking – “With so much on your plate, […]

So, first thing this morning, my computer informs me it has VERY IMPORTANT updates to install and would like to install them NOW. I said, no, no… I have a Friday Film Roundup post to write and politely asked it to just hold its horses. Then, when the post was near completed, poof! The computer […]
