From the Back Cover
This book attempts to correct the distortions, for the silent era was the richest in the cinema's history. The author has tried to recapture the spirit of era through the words of those who created it. Linking chapters provide a context for the interviews has led to gaps, and I cannot claim that his book is definitive.
About the Author
Kevin Brownlow, who lives in London, is a historian of silent films, which he began collecting at the age of eleven. He has written about them in "The Parade's Gone By...; The War, the West, and the Wilderness; Behind the Mask of Innocence; Hollywood: The Pioneers; "and "Napolean: Abel Gance's Classic Film", which recounted his acclaimed reconstruction of that famous masterpiece. As a filmmaker, he has made two features with Andrew Mollo--"It Happened Here" and "Winstanley"--and several television documentaries with David Gill, including the thirteen-part series "Hollywood", first shown in 1980, and more recently "Unknown Chaplin, Buster KEaton: A Hard Art to Follow, "and "Harold Lloyd: The Third Genius".
