Silent Movies: The First Male Stars
 
04:15
Discover the captivating lives and groundbreaking accomplishments of fourteen men who dared to gamble their reputations by appearing in the first motion pictures, at a time when other actors in the "legitimate theater" scorned the industry. These amazing men not only defied the odds of success, but also received a place at the heights of a fascinating business that was a new form of art. Each made an enduring and important contribution to early cinema, although some are forgotten today. Exhaustive research in every major archive of the world has created this compilation of information and images. In this engaging and educational volume, David W. Menefee reaches into the vaults of history to withdraw countless, unusual details that tell how these men, their roles, and their influence were received in their time, and how their powerful impact still lingers today. The book includes 114 rare scene photos, portraits, reproductions of full-page film advertisements, and lobby cards. Actors include: John Barrymore, Lionel Barrymore, Richard Barthelmess, John Bunny, Francis X. Bushman, Lon Chaney, Jackie Coogan, William S. Hart, Tom Mix, Antonio Moreno, Jack Pickford, Wallace Reid, Rudolph Valentino, and Crane Wilbur.

Charlie Chaplin - The Dentist (1914) Silent Film
 
12:39
Support this channel on Patreon! - https://www.patreon.com/CharlieChaplin The Dentist is a 1914 film starring Charlie Chaplin. The film is also known as Busy Little Dentist, Down and Out, Laffing Gas, and Tuning His Ivories. We are told Charlie is a dental assistant. He arrives at work where the patients are already waiting. He joins the tiny second dental assistant in the back room. They have a brief squabble then Charlie goes to the waiting room to clean the floor with a carpet sweeper. He bumps into a patient and a further squabble starts. Then back to the rear room for more squabbling. The dentist arrives, and his first patient goes in, obviously in pain. The dentist prepares the nitrous oxide anaesthesic (also known commonly as "laughing gas" due to its effects prior to and after unconsciousness). With the man unconscious he pulls his tooth, but then he can't get him to wake up. He calls for Charlie and when he arrives the dentist runs off. Charlie tries to wake him and eventually tries hitting his head with a mallet. The man revives but starts laughing. Charlie knocks him out with the mallet. The dentist then returns and Charlie is sent to the drug store to get a prescription. After more fighting with the patients he goes from Dr Pain's surgery to the Sunset Pharmacy. He strikes a man standing at a news-stand outside. He looks at a woman (the dentist's wife) and Charlie kicks him in the stomach before chasing the woman himself, and an incident occurs where she loses her skirt and runs off in embarrassment. He continues fighting with the man, who receives a brick in the face, thus becoming another dental patient. A second brick hits a passer-by equally losing him a tooth. Meanwhile, the dentist gets a phone call from his maid to say his wife has had an "accident" and he goes home. Charlie returns to find the surgery empty. He picks the prettier of the two female patients in the waiting room. The other lady leaves, leaving them alone. Charlie flirts with her and looks very closely into her mouth, stealing kisses. Meanwhile, the two men struck by bricks arrive. The girl leaves. The tall passerby goes in next. Charlie uses a huge pair of pliers to remove another tooth. With all the noise the news-stand victim enters and a final fight ensues.

Paul & Kurt - Different From The Others (Gay Themed, Silent Film)
 
05:18
This Music Video is dedicated to the lovely and sweet Jávier aka Jaybrucken , A Silen Film Lover . *hugs* =) Warning:This music video is based on the German film Different From The Others , is focused on the beautiful relationship of Paul & Kurt , It contain M/M love scenes , meaning is homoerotic , gay , yaoi etc... you get the idea , if If this isn't your cup of tea , Please don't watch it! Music :Méditation de Thaïs Interpret By: Joshua Bell. Some info regarding the movie: it is the first film to depict homosexual activity in a positive light, and it discusses the issue in a very frank and straight forward fashion. The movie is a rally against Paragraph 175 of the German Penal Code which made homosexuality between men against the law. This film has an interesting history behind it. Paragraph 175 had been a source of contention for a number of years. Dr. Magnus Hirschfeld, a German sexologist and scholar, thought that homosexuals were actually a third sex, and they were just acting on their nature. During WWI, Hirschfeld teamed up with director Richard Oswald to produce a series of films on sexual education. They filmed stories on prostitution, VD and the like. After the war the censor restrictions were lifted in German and Hirschfeld saw his chance. He and Oswald made Different from the Others, part educational and part political, their film was very controversial when it was released. It was banned in 1920, and all copies were burned by Nazis. Today the film only exists in an incomplete form discovered in a film archive in Russia. The film stars Conrad Veidt (Cesare from The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari) as a virtuoso violinist, Paul Körner. He takes on a handsome young student, Kurt (Fritz Schulz,) and the two soon fall in love. Unfortunately, Paul is being blackmailed by Franz Bollek (Reinhold Schünzel) a shifty crook who has found out that Paul is a homosexual. Hes bleeding Paul for all hes worth, and though Körner could have Franz arrested for blackmail, he would be arrested too for violating Paragraph 175. Why, the film asks, should someone, an artist no less, be condemned for just loving someone? Don't claim to own any of the material used to make this music video. *Just Having Fun* Hope you enjoy it! =)

The Touaregs in Their Country (1908) | Silent Film
 
07:04
Presented for historical reference. French title, Chez les Touaregs Scenes of a Touareg village show the tribe's women, boys posing and fighting, two men fighting with sticks and wrestling, the tying of a turban, equipping and mounting the camels, the parade of a caravan, demonstrating an assault on a colonial courier, a "Fantasia" parade, horsemen riding toward the camera with their guns blazing, and a mother and child playing with a kitten. From the US Library if Congress. “The Tuareg people (/ˈtwɑːrɛɡ/; also spelt Twareg or Touareg; endonym: Kel Tamasheq, Kel Tagelmustare a large Berber ethnic confederation. They principally inhabit the Sahara in a vast area stretching from far southwestern Libya to southern Algeria, Niger, Mali and Burkina Faso. Traditionally nomadic pastoralists, small groups of Tuareg are also found in northern Nigeria. The Tuareg speak the Tuareg languages (also known as Tamasheq), which belong to the Berber branch of the Afroasiatic family. The Tuaregs have been called the "blue people" for the indigo-dye coloured clothes they traditionally wear and which stains their skin. A semi-nomadic Muslim people, they are believed to be descendants of the Berber natives of North Africa. The Tuaregs have been one of the ethnic groups that have been historically influential in the spread of Islam and its legacy in North Africa and the adjacent Sahel region. Tuareg society has traditionally featured clan membership, social status and caste hierarchies within each political confederation. The Tuareg have controlled several trans-Saharan trade routes and have been an important party to the conflicts in the Saharan region during the colonial and post-colonial era.” — Wikipedia

28mm Pathe silent film G113a - "NO MORE BALD MEN" FR 1905?
 
02:45
Here is a very old film - the 28mm film gauge was introduced by Pathe around 1912, so we know that this little comedy film was made before then. The reference number in the UK Pathe 28mm catalogue was G013a (normally two little shorts were supplied on the one film spool). An interesting use of trick photography - using single frame animation - wonder who the 'stars' were - no doubt fiilmed in France by Pathe. (Thanks to enthusiast Martyn Stevens for this excellent transfer!) More information about the 28mm film gauge at www.pathefilm.uk/twentyeight/28kok.htm (I make no money from these uploads)

Mystery Men movie clips: http://j.mp/1CMxgMB BUY THE MOVIE: http://amzn.to/svkVhO Don't miss the HOTTEST NEW TRAILERS: http://bit.ly/1u2y6pr CLIP DESCRIPTION: The Spleen (Paul Reubens) shares his farting power with the team. FILM DESCRIPTION: Can seven not-so-superheroes save a city of the future? Based on the comic book series created by Bob Burden, Mystery Men is set in the teeming metropolis of Champion City, where noble superhero Captain Amazing (Greg Kinnear) keeps the peace and sees that justice is done. When Captain Amazing mysteriously disappears, his archenemy Casanova Frankenstein (Geoffrey Rush) sees his opportunity to seize power and bend the city to his evil will, with his associate Dr. Annabel Leek (Lena Olin) at his side. However, Casanova will not succeed without a fight, as the The Mystery Men leap into action. The Mystery Men are not your ordinary Men of Steel; in fact, they're barely superheroes at all. Mr. Furious (Ben Stiller) has one gift: throwing tantrums. Blue Raja (Hank Azaria) is a deadly hand with spoons and forks (but not knives). Shoveler (William H. Macy) can dig with superior speed and force. The Bowler (Janeane Garafalo) rolls the ball with superhuman precision. Spleen (Paul Reubens) has a gaseous problem that he's turned into a weapon against evildoers. Invisible Boy (Kel Mitchell) is convinced he can become invisible at will, but he hasn't actually done it yet. And The Sphinx (Wes Studi) does have an unusual power: he can cut metal objects with his mind. Aided by addled gadget master Dr. Heller (Tom Waits), the Mystery Men make their move against Casanova and Annabel, who feel just threatened enough to make things personal by kidnapping Mr. Furious' girlfriend Monica (Claire Forlani). Mystery Men marked the feature directorial debut of Kinka Usher, who previously directed such ads as the Taco Bell talking chihuahua and the Dairy Association's "Got Milk?"

Silent Movie Star George O'Brien: A Man's Man in Hollywood
 
03:01
George O'Brien thrills audiences today with his signature role in F. W. Murnau's Sunrise, Michael Curtiz' Noah's Ark, and John Ford's The Iron Horse, The Blue Eagle, Salute, The Seas Beneath, Fort Apache, and Cheyenne Autumn. He was one of America's most beloved film stars. His on-screen heroics were more than matched by his real life bravery. For the first time, the story is told how he survived the great 1906 San Francisco earthquake to grow up a superb athlete, a decorated hero in World War One, and a stunt double for film idol Rudolph Valentino. O'Brien was one of hundreds working as an assistant cameraman, extra, and bit player when he was plucked from obscurity to head the cast of John Ford's epic, The Iron Horse. They said he became a star overnight, but he had appeared in dozens of silent movies. O'Brien's rise to the top ranks of silent films reached sublime proportions when F. W. Murnau featured him in the classic romance, Sunrise. Warner Bros. plunged him into one of the first talking pictures when director Michael Curtiz converted his silent Noah's Ark epic into sound. Many men, women, and animals were injured during the climatic flood scenes, but O'Brien lived through the deluge to become a top star for twenty years. In the 1940s, O'Brien walked away from the pinnacle of stardom to answer the call to arms and re-enlist when American entered World War Two. He actively fought in several island invasions, and when the war ended, he returned only to find that a new generation of filmgoers had grown up never having seen him in a motion picture. He succeeded with a modest comeback, but left Hollywood a second time to assist with military conflicts in Korea. When he returned to civilian life again, he briefly pioneered in early television work and lived to enjoy retrospectives of his films during the 1970s and 1980s. This richly researched work draws from hundreds of sources, including major archives and the George O'Brien Estate. The book reveals how he was received in his time and his role in the development of motion pictures from silent to sound. George appeared in more than a hundred credited and unaccredited films, and this book reveals them with a richly researched biography, an extensive Filmography, and hundreds of rare portraits, posters, and lobby cards that capture the glamour of Hollywood's Golden Era.

Louise Brooks "Rediscovered Silent Film Star"
 
03:58
Mary Louise Brooks (November 14, 1906 August 8, 1985), generally known by her stage name Louise Brooks, was an American dancer, model, showgirl and silent film actress, famous for pioneering the bobbed haircut. Brooks is best known for her three feature roles including two G. W. Pabst films: in Pandora's Box (1929), Diary of a Lost Girl (1929), and Prix de Beauté (Miss Europe) (1930). She starred in 17 silent films and, late in life, authored a memoir, Lulu in Hollywood. She made an appearance as a featured dancer in the 1925edition of the Ziegfeld Follies on Broadway, also having an affiar with Charlie Chaplin that Summer. French film historians rediscovered her films in the early 1950s, proclaiming her as an actress who surpassed even Marlene Dietrich and Greta Garbo as a film icon (Henri Langlois: "There is no Garbo, there is no Dietrich, there is only Louise Brooks!"), much to her amusement. Brooks had retired from the screen that same year after completing one last film, the John Wayne western Overland Stage Raiders in which she played the romantic lead with a long hairstyle that rendered her all but unrecognizable from her "Lulu" days. She then briefly returned to Wichita, where she was raised. "But that turned out to be another kind of hell," she said. "The citizens of Wichita either resented me having been a success or despised me for being a failure. And I wasn't exactly enchanted with them. I must confess to a lifelong curse: My own failure as a social creature." After an unsuccessful attempt at operating a dance studio, she returned East and, after brief stints as a radio actor and a gossip columnist, worked as a salesgirl in a Saks Fifth Avenue store in New York City for a few years, then eked out a living as a courtesan with a few select wealthy men as clients. Brooks had been a heavy drinker since age and was an alcoholic for a major portion of her life and some biographers have suggested that she turned to prostitution. On August 8, 1985, Louise Brooks was found dead of a massive heart attack. She was buried in Sepulchre Cemetery in Rochester, New York. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Ziegfeld-Follies-Tribute-Glorifying-the-American-Girl/188195047896421#!/pages/Ziegfeld-Follies-Tribute-Glorifying-the-American-Girl/188195047896421?sk=wall

Sarah Bernhardt, Her Silent Films, Her Recordings
 
06:40
Content provided by permission of the author of Sarah Bernhardt, Her Films, Her Recordings (Foreword by Academy Award-Winning Film Historian Kevin Brownlow). Sarah Bernhardt was called the world's greatest actress. She appeared in one of the earliest sound motion pictures. She spoke on one of Thomas Edison's earliest recordings. She earned a place in motion picture history with her early sound film, Le Duel d'Hamlet, and her silent movies, Adrienne Lecouvreur, Camille, and Queen Elizabeth. Historians credit her with leading the way for other stars to appear in films in an era when the movies were considered beneath the dignity of a respectable performer. The new book includes detailed analyses of her films, hundreds of rare photographs, plot synopses, casts, contemporary reviews, and production notes. In a revised and expanded version of the brilliant Sarah Bernhardt in the Theater of Films and Sound Recordings, Sarah Bernhardt's unforgettable story is retold during Paramount Pictures' Centennial celebration by esteemed Pulitzer nominee David W. Menefee. David W.
