These 10 GIFs Will Give You an Appreciation for Silent Era Filmmaking

 

For the last three years, Don McHoull has been faithfully uploading gifs from silent era films to Twitter under the handle @SilentMovieGIfs.

Not surprisingly, the account heavily features the work of Buster Keaton, Charlie Chaplin, Harold Lloyd and Fritz Lang. McHoull also routinely adds context and supplemental information to the clips, fostering greater appreciation for the filmmaking and talent of the period’s most famous actors.

The Sifter hopes the 10 gifs below will pique your curiosity and encourage you to check out more amazing silent film moments at @SilentMovieGifs on Twitter!
