Since starting this blog I have been exposed to so many fabulous classic film bloggers, amazing classic film podcasts, and a whole new world of films that I had never heard of or seen before. This has sparked in me a desire to improve my film education, which lead to an increase in my film and book collections, and it has also lead me to decide to do a theme month this October.
If there is one area of classic film that I feel like I don’t have enough experience it would be silent films. Growing up I watched the films of Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin but that was pretty much it. After starting this blog I found amazing bloggers such as Fritzi of Movies Silently and Olive of Star Nitrate, who have such a passion for silent film that you can’t help but be sucked in. After taking part in a few of Fritzi’s blogathons and writing about silent films my interest was piqued. So, I have decided to make October my month of silent film!
As a challenge to myself, I am going to watch nothing in October except silent films. I will be taking part in the CMBA blogathon so there will be that, I will be writing about THE LADY VANISHES, but otherwise it will be only Marion Davies, Milton Sills, and Pola Negri. I hope you will join me!
