For cinema's first three decades the stars of the silver screen were mostly quiet. There was musical accompaniment for sure and laugh and tears aplenty. It was the golden age, an age of innocence and progress. The Artist only told half the story, now revisit the real thing. Laugh with Lloyd, Chaplin, Keaton, Arbuckle and their many friends, buckle some swash with Fairbanks or cry yourself silly with Gish. Make it swish, make it silent.
