Silent Film Screencap Challenge

It’s been a very long time since I attempted one of these, and since I’m finally almost done with silents for my classes I thought I’d give them their due. This one is going to be pretty difficult, so good luck!

  1. These films seem unnecessarily obscure. The only one I recognize is Hands of Orlac. Also Phantom Carriage (I think?).

    (I bet if I did a quick scan of your *lh* history, I could guess the others pretty quickly, too.)

    Oh wait, is that Swanson one Beyond the Rocks?

    The Anna May Wong shot is gorgeous. Tell me the film so I can see it.

  2. I want to make you work Ian, no more lazy movie guessing. Hands of Orlac is right, I’ll credit you for that. Phantom Carriage is wrong, I won’t.

    Swanson is Beyond the Rocks.

    And no! Someone tried to guess the Anna May Wong Shot and made a bunch of wrong guesses though, it’s not
    A Trip to Chinatown
    The Toll of the Sea

  3. I’m not much for games. If I promise not to ruin the Wong answer, will you email it to me? I seriously want to see it. Like, tomorrow. Thanks.
