We offer a huge collection of classic, rare, oop movies to classic movie fans. We specialize in black and white (B&W) vintage classic movies from 1880s, 1890, 1900s, 1910s, 1920s, 1930s, 1940s, 1950s, 1960s and 1970s.  Our silent movie collection is one of the biggest collection available. We believe that the era of silent cinema was one of the most imaginative periods in human history. During the silent films era, a new visual vocabulary was invented by directors such as Georges Méliès, Charles Chaplin, Raoul Walsh, G.W. Pabst, F.W. Murnau, Fritz Lang, Vladislav Starevich, Robert Wiene, Josef von Sternberg, Per Lindberg, Lois Weber, Erich von Stroheim, Phillips Smalley, Carl Theodor Dreyer, Leo McCarey, Mauritz Stiller, Kenji Mizoguchi, Miles Brothers, Buster Keaton, Eddie Cline, Giovanni Pastrone, Mikhail Kalatozov, Yasujir Ozu, Alfred Hitchcock, Josef von Sternberg, Charles Vanel, Fred Niblo, Sergei Eisenstein, Leo Mittler, Frank Borzage, Clarence Brown, Anthony Asquith, Mauritz Stiller, Aleksandr Medvedkin, Maurice Tourneur, Winsor McKay, King Vidor, Ted Wilde, Victor Sjöstrom, André Antoine, Herbert Ponting, Man Ray, Harold L. Muller, Charles R. Bowers, Wallace Worsley, Victor Flemming, Fred C. Newmeyer, Sam Taylor, Oskar Fischinger, Jean Epstein, Alexander Dovzhenko, Carl Theodor Dreyer, Abel Gance, Dziga Vertov, Yevgeni Bauer, Hanns Schwarz, Dimitri Kirsanoff, Paul Leni, Louis Lumiere and …. Different genres shaped as the medium was used for entertainment, politics, education and propaganda. The challenge of visual storytelling without sound pushed filmmakers to find new ways to tell stories and communicate ideas. When we think of silent movie stars we inevitably think of Garbo, Charlie Chaplin, Rudolph Valentino, Lillian Gish, Clara Bow, Annette Kellerman, Sessue Hayakawa, Maurice Costello, Helene Costello, Art Acord, Lupe Velez, Theda Bara, William Haines, Florence Lawrence, and Louise Brooks.   

The great legends of Hollywood are remembered for their work and often sensational personal lives. Thus, most people today know something of the loves, losses, and scandals of stars like James Dean and Marilyn Monroe. But what of the great stars of Hollywood’s formative years—the silent film era? Though most are all but forgotten today, many led lives of fascination and scandal that could easily match those of their latter-day peers. 

We offer a great selection of movies from the greatest film directors, with suggested or recommended Best Films or 'Must-See' Films from their filmographies. Directors such as Frank Capra, George Cukor, Michael Curtiz, Cecil B. DeMille, D. W. Griffith, Georges Méliès, Charles Chaplin, Raoul Walsh, G.W. Pabst, F.W. Murnau, Fritz Lang, Vladislav Starevich, Robert Wiene, Josef von Sternberg, Per Lindberg, Lois Weber, Erich von Stroheim, Phillips Smalley, Carl Theodor Dreyer, John Huston, Elia Kazan, Buster Keaton, Ernst Lubitsch, Vincente Minnelli, F.W. Murnau, Roman Polanski, Powell and Pressburger, Otto Preminger, Douglas Sirk, George Stevens, Preston Sturges, William Wyler and…

Many of these film-makers were highly innovative mavericks and renegades who challenged the established 'system' that existed during their time. As you may agree, the director is the most significant person responsible for creating 'movie magic' and mixing together all the ingredients of the film-making process. These directors have made a noteworthy, permanent and powerful contribution to the development of film and the film industry. Each one has directed a steady body of work with a number of ground breaking movies.

The artistic greatness of films can never be rated, although critics, reviewers, and fans still make ten best lists, hundred best lists, all-time greatest lists, favorites lists, awards lists, and generate results of polls.
