Why We Need to Keep Searching for Lost Silent Films

"Who in the 1920s would have predicted that Louise Brooks, while certainly popular at the time, would be considered an iconic figure and one of the greatest actresses of her era some nine decades later?" writes Fritzi Kramer in the current issue of Smithsonian.com.

Kramer, the
founder of Movies, Silently, a website dedicated to the lost art of silent films, has penned a thoughtful, even provocative article, on the value of early film. The article is titled "Why We Need to Keep Searching for Lost Silent Films: Early motion pictures give us an important window into our collective past." While Louise Brooks is given only a passing mention, the LBS recommends everyone interested in early film to read this piece. Check it out today!
