Silent movie nights in September & October 2017

We started the new season at the Odie Cinema at the beginning of last month. I was a bit lazy, so I didn't blog about the September schedule in advance. However, in this post I will first briefly recap the movies we saw, just for the record.

September 1
Asphalt (1929, Germany). Starring Betty Amann and Gustav Fröhlich.

September 8
One Day (1920, USA). Starring Buster Keaton and Sybil Seely.

September 15
The Last of the Mohicans (1920, USA). Starring Wallace Beery and Barbara Bedford.

September 22
The Wizard of Oz (1925, USA). Starring Larry Semon, Oliver Hardy, Dorothy Dwan.

September 29
The Lost World (1925, USA). Starring Wallace Beery.

It was last year that I introduced monthly themes for the movie selections, and although we haven't always stuck to them, October was the month dedicated to silent horrors and comedy horrors (to see the list of films we played at the Odie a year ago, click here). Since I love this time of year, and all the spookiness surrounding Halloween, I've decided to redo the horror theme. Here's the October schedule - to learn more about these films, click on the titles to get the Wikipedia entries on them.

October 6
Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1920, USA). Directed by John S. Robertson, starring John Barrymore and Nita Naldi.


October 13
Warning Shadows / Schatten - eine nächtliche Halluzination (1923, Germany). Directed by Arthur Robinson, starring Fritz Kortner, Ruth Weyher.


October 20
