Top 10 silent films to watch after The Artist

Top 10 silent films to watch after The Artist

Good list, but there are tons of films that could/should be on a list like this. So many in fact that a list of "just" 10 is inadequate. This one has no mention of Harold Lloyd, Douglas Fairbanks Sr., D.W. Griffith, Mary Pickford, either Gish sister, Rudolph Valentino or Clara Bow. Not to mention the other silent movie that won in 1927 (for "Best Picture, Unique and Artistic Production"), Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans".

The list is a bit predictable, but still a good crash-course for someone new to silent film. is streaming some silent films for free this week only (titles that normally require the Hulu Plus subscription), including Louise Brooks in Pandora's Box and Vilgot Sjöman's The Phantom Carriage. Worth checking out!
