the sound of silents
garbo talks! was the 1930’s headline just after this film, ‘the kiss’. it was her last silent and she speaks volumes without saying a word.
i’ve never been into silent films but turner ran some last week and i recorded them with the dvr (love that feature)!
not only did it have some sumptuous apartment scenes
(and some sad ones at that),
it also had classic shots of her with powder puff at the vanity, which is a great cherry for the ‘boudoir noir’ book!
so as with charle chap’s silents i discovered last week, here’s another a whole new collection to explore! with titles like the temptress, flesh and the devil, love, a woman of affairs, the single standard, wild orchids...how can you resist?
silence is great in any language!
