In a well-appointed den, Lewis Stone hosts a celebration of twenty years of M-G-M's best films. He summarizes the merger of three studios in 1924 and introduces clips from 26 films in chronological order. The emphasis is on stars and Oscar-winning performances, spectacles, and melodrama. There are also a couple of comedies, three musicals, war pictures, an earthquake, a gushing oil well, and a compilation-ending kiss.Written by
Oooh, this was great. Nice clean crisp digital video clips from some of M-G-M's best silent films and early talkie classics. Shown on Turner Classic Movies from time to time, it is well worth watching. Clips from the silent version of Ben-Hur are shown, and also clips from Greta Garbo and John Gilbert and John and Renee Adoree in The Big Parade, and Lon Chaney and William Haines and Eleanor Boardman in "Tell It To The Marines". Makes me wish that Turner would get on the ball and release these silent classics on DVD format...finally!
Talkie clips shown are from Min and Bill, Broadway Melody, The Good Earth, and Grand Hotel, among many others. See if you find this gem in between showings of silent classics on Silent Sunday nights on TCM.
