Default The Official UK Silent Films Thread

Welcome to the Official UK Silent Films Thread! (dunno what's so official about it...)

Thread introduction:
[Show spoiler]
If this thread goes well, I will remove this paragraph later, or spoiler tag it away for a cleaner look, but I've been thinking about doing this for a while. I want to give full credit to jasonjl for his incredible thread here which hasn't been updated in a while. I figured making a thread for the UK forum would be fine but want to namecheck him, even though my layout will be a tad different! Hopefully this can be a place where all of us silent film enthusiasts can chat about upcoming releases, older releases and more.

I've become a huge fan of silent films over the past few years, and the Blu-ray format, this forum, and jasonjl's thread, have only furthered my passion along. Hopefully there are a few other fellow silent film fanatics out there who will find some use from this thread! Please feel free to PM me or comment any I've missed, and I hope to keep this up to date for a long time to come. I'm also open to any suggestions about the layout, cheers!


The idea here is to list the UK releases primarily, and then from around the world, sectioned off mostly into studios and then everything else that seems to "fit."

Great idea for a thread, made even better by the rightful inclusion of the Shaun the Sheep Movie (see my avatar)

Very surprised there's no UK Illusionist, but as it's easily available in multiple French editions it's not the end of the world.

Neat thread! Worth pointing out Master of the House is also available in the BFI's Carl Theodor Dreyer Collection...

Also, shouldn't Metropolis: Ultimate Collector's Edition be listed under "Misc. European Releases/Alternate UK Editions"? Or are you classing it as a separate edition due to the bonus disc?

Its a good thread but as its in the UK section I think the non UK blus should be removed
MIA on blu: Alfie (Original) The Pledge, Local Hero, A Matter Of Life and Death, A Man For All Seasons, Goodbye Mr Chips
MIA on blu in UK/region free: Kes, Human Traffic

Thanks, but the idea for this is to be a general silent film collecting thread, that's in the UK forum. 90% of all the US blus are region free also. I did take that into consideration though, so if you just stop looking at the Criterion section, all the UK titles are at the top.

Thanks, added! It was on my list but I suppose I got distracted by the gorgeous Eureka set which arrived today

Cheers, I'll add the Dreyer set, reminds me to add Mel Brooks set with Silent Movie too! Yeah separate edition with the bonus disc, though I think tomorrow I'll cut out the "alternate UK editions" bit, and put the MoC steelbooks in with the MoC maybe? Or just call it Misc. European Releases/Steelbooks.

No problem My pipe dream is to own every silent film release So it should make for a good checklist of sorts!

Excellent thanks! How English friendly are those French releases, if you know? I'll add these in later on today, much appreciated.

The Lumiere set doesn't have intertitles so that isn't a problem. The Linder sets are both English friendly (original English intertitles, etc.) ditto for the Bowers set and Variete. Downhill has original English intertitles.
