I don't know exactly why or how it happened, but I love silent movies. Saw one at a theatre in Stanford and I've been hooked ever since.

My favorite silent is "IT" with the original "it-girl", Clara Bow.

I also like all those silent film comedians, like Buster Keaton, Charlie Chaplin, and Harold Lloyd . . .

Recently? PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN.

Dude, you are me! Speaking of Buster Keaton, I have just finished watching The Navigator (1924), have you seen it?

Stick around here. You're interesting. :)

Yes, I've seen "The Navigator". Hold on, let me think. He did a couple of "boat" movies.

"Navigator"'s the one where he and that girl chase each other around the ship and just happen to miss each other at every turn? And it ends with him fighting off cannibals with a tiny cannon?

There was another Buster Keaton movie where he and his family were aboard some houseboat called the "Damfino". I spent about fifteen minutes wondering what the hell that meant, and then he used it in a gag where his ship is sinking and he sends out an S.O.S. They ask him what the name of the ship is and he spells it for them. They think he's said, "Damn if I know."

I guess that's why I've become a Johnny Depp fan. He gets a lot of his style and double-takes and what-not from the silent film greats (and he's honest enough to give them credit, too).

Why, even the ship sinking in POTC is reminiscent of a similar gag in a Buster Keaton "silent". Nice to find a fellow admirer of the "silver silents".
