Rhythmus 21 is a short, black and white silent film by Hans Richter released in 1921. In the beginning of the century, the coexistence of sound, color and movements in the same artwork was still on an experimental level. One of the first samples of such a work was Hans Richter's Rhythmus 21 (1921), a three minute film where the musical and the visual part are intrinsically connected between them, amplifying thus the impact of the work on the viewer. The image captures oneâs attention...

FILM IN 2 PARTS!!!! The 130 minutes version left of a film supposedly 6 hours long in its primary form. The most expensive production of that time, they say. (Director Stroheim, $700,000 producer Carl Laemmle, $1,300,000). Monte Carlo was entirely recreated on Hollywood backlot. Impressive indeed! more info on http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0013140/

This is a compilation of three prints from the Paper Print collection of the Library of Congress produced by American Mutoscpe and Biograph in 1906. I have added music and sharpened the title. The story is inconsequential but the scenes of the workers on the high beams are fascinating in those days before special effects, there is even a fight, and remember the cameraman and a bulky camera had to be there too. Enjoy the lovely Victorian gesture of the little girl at the end as she points to the...

This delightful little film was directed by Louis Feuillade in 1913. I have lightened a few scenes, added public domain music and with the help of Google translated the French into English. The boy is played by René Poyen. This silent film is a wonderful example of the prolific Feuillade's French wit. Take a look. It is worth a few minutes of your time.

An atmospheric film starring Charles Russell and Mary Beth Hughes. Fritz Leiber, Sr. (father of the famous author) has a cameo as a seer or psychic. "You're very pretty ... when those lips aren't moving." The IMDB entry is here. This print seems to be complete and may be of higher quality than the one already in the Archive. You can load the mpeg2 file into DVDAuthorGUI (a free program) and create a DVD to watch on your television.
