“An employment issue among professionals, about which most of the heat is expended on the subject of just who exactly will photograph those boy scouts 'round the Christmas tree. With a puppy!

A fellow like Todd can be expected to get huffy about propaganda, as he knows it when he sees it-- he dispenses it daily, though he usually goes to sources outside this administration for material.”

“I would agree that any topic of interest to agit-prop confectioneers must be read with caution bordering on disbelief, but on topics such as the biography of a 19th century landscape painter, not so much.  I find, in areas of interest about which I know  more than little, that most entries are pretty good.”

“Baylor is not an Ivy League school. That's where Paul attended college. Duke University is not an Ivy League school. That's where he got his medical training.

He is many things, most of them decidedly not to my taste, but he's no "Ivy Leager".

“A smattering of positivity:

Yep, most silent pictures are lost, and most will never be discovered in a forgotten basement on a dusty shelf, but some great pictures from that era are in the best technical shape (after restoration) than they've been in decades.

""Foolish Wives", which I consider to be Von Stroheim's masterpiece, was re-issued by Kino a few years ago, with restored footage and, in a few places, stills where the footage is lost. I've seen it a half-dozen times, and it's 3 and a half hours long! Wasn't bored a minute!

Also, Lang's "Metropolis". Many bits and bobs and hunks of this film have been around for years, but the most complete version had many minutes missing-- till a copy was found in South America in the lase decade-- on 8 or 16mm, and not of the best quality, but now this film makes more storyline sense than it has since shortly after it was released!

Comedians Harold Lloyd and Charlie Chaplin each owned his own pictures, or at least most of them. Chaplin, when he re-packaged his early comedies in the Thirties, even wrote his own musical accompaniments! Because they took care of their own pasts better than the industry would have, we can see most of the films of these early masters now.”

“"Birth of a nation" may well be the worst, by standards of race-baiting, but it was extremely popular and successful, praised by President Woodrow Wilson: "“It’s like writing history with lightning. My only regret is that it is all so terribly true.”

You notion that Griffith was told " NOT to consider any more films unless he had something that was a LOT better" is fiction. Pure fiction. He was the most universally revered silent era director during the industry's infancy, credited for many film conventions we take for granted such as dissolves between scenes, as well as for his films themselves. Please don't take this as a defense of the man or "The Birth of a Nation". I'm imparting fact.

You can look it up. And ought to.

Since there were no Oscars handed out during the silent era till 1928, it cannot surprise that no silent picture won an award for best picture till such awards were handed out. And then came The Jazz Singer".”
