As I’ve mentioned before, I’m a big fan of silent movies. It may be nearly 100 years since the silent movie era, but we still watch them. I wonder, though, how many of today’s stars will be remembered a century from now? So, for those of you who’ve yet to check out the genre, here are some of the most memorable stars of silent movies, along with some suggestions from their works.
1. Louise Brooks
Price: $26.99 at amazon.com
Brooks was most famous for her iconic bobbed haircut, and her performance as the delightful but doomed Lulu in ‘Pandora’s Box’. She really is mesmerising on screen, so do watch some of her performances – and don’t miss her as Lulu.
