I know it's one of the big ones that everyone is familiar with... but Nosferatu is so creepy that it still works. I love that movie.

That being said, I am a huge Lon Chaney fan. (Sr. - Though he was not really a Sr. - Creighton Chaney changed his name to Lon Chaney Jr. to break into the movie biz). Phantom of the Opera is just one of my all time favorites.

I have enjoyed 'bites' of Charlie Chaplin movies... but I am really not that well versed outside of the really famous scenes and gags.

I'm not that old. but I've seen Larurel and Hardey when they were in black and white. I think the only actual silent one I've had the misfourtune of reading was a Charlie Chaplin. I hate subtitles.

Definitely a Chaplin fan, Buster Keaton is also a great one

GONE! GONE!
Nosferatu and Metropolis were awesome as hell, also this very old horror film... I think it was called The Black Cat or something like that.

Yes! Chaplin and Keaton were both comedic geniuses. It's a shame that so many people have never heard of, or seen, Buster Keaton.

I totally forgot about the Lon Chaney version of Phantom of the Opera. That was amazing!
