Modern Silents

"Blancanieves" ( Snow White ) is a very interesting modernen tribute to silent cinema; a Spanish film project that will be directed by Herr Pablo Berger and starring major Spanish actress Frau Maribel Verdú, a modernen nitrate that "will be faithful to the dark spirit of the popular Grimm brothers' tale and the language of silent cinema; a careful recreation, hypnotic and unsettling of those unforgettable 1920's, a succession of beautiful images, no spoken words and sublime music", says Herr Berger.

Shooting is due to take place this summer and certainly this Herr Graf is looking forward to such interesting and bold reinterpretation of classic silent films.

"The White Shadow" (1923) Has Been Found!

Herr Graham Cutts' "The White Shadow" (1923) has been discovered in New Zealand ( well, more precisely and unfortunately only a part of it... ), a lost film in which Herr Alfred Hitchcock did a lot of extra work, namely, assistant director, art director, dialogue writer and editor.

Great silent summertime news, Ja Wohl!!... These things unfortunately just happen from time to time.. anyway, this Herr Graf think that this is undoubtedly one of the most important summertime silent discoveries since decades because this German count love and appreciates very much to watch such politically incorrect nitrates in where old ladies smoke without remorse!!... Ah, those old silent nicotine times!!!.

Deutsche Lyrik

"Time to rest at Baden-Baden, an aristocratic place,
where impossible promises to rich heiresses sweeten the chase.

Time to practice the genuine aristocratic sport,
of pestering the servants in a favourite resort.

It’s a time of leisure and pleasure at the Casino,
taking advantage of old spinsters playing Valentino;

And best of all, to think of fall
and plan on movies for the Schloss hall”.
