Weekend Steam: Antique Entertainment
I can remember asking my Grandmother if she had seen silent movies, and of course, she had. She laughed about it and told me that movies were very different when she was a girl. She told me that more than fifty years ago. (I also asked her if she knew how to dance the Charleston...she was a Covenanter, (I didn't know that back then.) so that was sort of a dumb question. Anyhow, here is a great example of a silent film from 1915, with Helen Holmes saving the day, and Thomas Edison Studios promoting cigarettes. Posted on YouTube by sfo1164.
