ENCHANTMENT 1921

Hi all. Here's a link to a project I just started to get a copy of this Marion Davies film out of Library of Congress. I hope it's the start of many such projects spearheaded by me and others.

Re: Dorothy Mackaill

I've got many of her talkies from TCM and a few silents like Shore Leave and Ranson's Folly, both with Richard Barthelmess.

Re: Dorothy Mackaill

Interesting. Thanks for posting.

Mackaill's The Flirting Widow is pretty good and shows up on TCM now and then. Still waiting to see The Barker.

I don't consider her voice to be raspy. Odd comment.

Re: WHAT SILENTS & PRE-CODES HAVE YOU SEEN LATELY?

Finally got around to watching Griffith's The Girl Who Stayed at Home , a lousy title but a surprisingly good movie, once it gets going. Rumor has it Lillian and Dorothy Gish were slated to star with Richard Barthelmess and Robert Harron but were not available so Griffith brought in Carol Dempster a...

Re: WHAT SILENTS & PRE-CODES HAVE YOU SEEN LATELY?

The Flirting Widow (1931) Far-fetched but amusing drawing-room comedy about an elder daughter (Dorothy Mackaill) who fakes a marriage engagement in order for her younger sister to marry, thereby avoiding having to wear "green stockings" at her wedding. The tradition is that younger daught...

Re: Richard Barthelmess

I mentioned The Cabin in the Cotton in the original post. It's an odd film with Barthelmess almost revisiting Tol'able David. But it's a good story and Bette Davis is a hoot.

Re: Richard Barthelmess

The book is not an extensive biography, but a series of biographical pieces built around photos. I liked it.

Re: Richard Barthelmess

He's a favorite of mine also.... Masscre is extremely compelling as is Heroes for Sale and The Last Flight . These three especially are hugely underrated. For me Barthelmess ranks as one of the best silent film actors. He played a variety of roles, and he wasn't afraid of doing unsympathetic roles a...
