Scott Lord Silent Film Magazine Cover Art

Scott Lord Silent Film

I am revising my web pages on silent film, particularly after having begun reading two very seminal textbooks, Film Until Now, by Paul Rotha and Scandinavian Film, by Forsyth Hardy. There is always the possibility that a third textbook will be with my material on Silent Film Magazine cover art, so during coffee breaks I'm glancing through full page magazine advertisements that act as movie posters.
Meanwhile, if you check my blogs, I'll be spending some of the end of the summer on the ocean and have a little time before we'll be there. It will be near where the poem The Wreck of the Hesperus, by Longfellow, takes place- last year we had a romantic moonlight walk near the house of a painter, Fitz Hugh Lane, after having had dinner.

Scandinavian Film

Scandinavian Film

I am very fortunate to have finally found a copy of Scandinavian Film by Forsyth Hardy and am currently reading as much of it as I can.
Please click the link above for a free only copy of the seminal text on Swedish and Danish Film before 1950.
Also feel invited to view my webpage on Silent Film.

Woman to Woman (1929) The new old film for which I have to make time



This fascinates me. I will generally watch anything like it and there are several Basil Rathbone films from before 1936 that I would still like to watch again. Anything from this studio could be intriguing. I just can't guarantee for how long any You Tube video will exist.
Please wait for my review.
