Does anybody have any favorites? Mine are Nosferatu, Das Kabinett des Doktor Caligari (which I most likely misspelled), and anything with Theda Bara.

Nosferatu is an incredible film; the first time I saw it I thought I wouldn't think much of it, but it ended up being one of my favourite films. I just think it's sad that most of the colour slides they did for it were destroyed but for a few. It would have been so interesting to see the changes in the film's atmosphere it would have made.

I have to say, I know it's not a silent film, but I loved 'Shadow of the Vampire' which they made in 2000, based on a fictional behind the scenes story of Nosferatu.

The other silent film I loved was the 1920 version of 'Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde'. I thought everything in the film; the lighting, the make up, and the special effects were brilliant for the time.

Nosferatu is a great film. I love F. W. Murnau other words too. I recently got Nosferatu, but I don't have any others. I will watch other silent films if I randomly come across one, and it is good

`We've reached a consensus on Nosferatu here.

But what really makes a silent film great is how the imagery has to make up for lack of auditory stimulation.

It's like when you lose one of your senses, every other is heightened. But maybe I'm overthinking this.

`Those two are my absolute favorites, yes!

But what about Phantom of the Opera (1925)?

Anything with Lon Cheney is marvelous. Very Happy
