Pool Sharks (Edwin Middleton, 1915)
I thought I’d take the opportunity to improve my short-form writing with probably the most ambitious retrospective I’ve done to date, a full exploration of the career of acclaimed American vaudevillian and comedian W.C. Fields. Whilst not quite held in the same regard as giants of the period like the Marx Brothers, he was nonetheless a distinct wit who featured in some of the wittiest sound comedies of the 30’s and 40’s. But we start off with his lead debut in the silent era, in this little 15 minute short about a pool game between two men competing for the affections of a woman. It’s a pleasant little piece of silent slapstick, whilst Fields is known for the actual jokes he cracks later in his career, his roots in vaudeville make him very adept at physical comedy and expressions, reminiscent of very early Chaplin who was also getting his start in this time period. There’s also a very early example of stop-motion animation in the actual pool game itself, pleasantly subverting audience expectations with a sense of the absurd and ridiculous. It’s free to find on YouTube, and it’s a good, if unrepresentative introduction to Fields career. #film #cinema #movie #classicfilm #filmblog #filmcollection #filmoftheday #filmmaking #filmreview #filmposter #filmtime #poolsharks #edwinmiddleton #1915 #wcfields #budross #comedy #romance #slapstick #silentfilm #blackandwhite #blackandwhitefilm #shortfilm

"The term "absolute film" has come to encompass a genre of film devoted to experimenting with and revealing the elemental components of cinema: light, the film frame, and time. As Richter explained in 1926, “The absolute film signifies the foundation of cinematic art. . . . The absolute film opens your eyes for the first time to what the camera is, can be, and wants!”" -https://www.moma.org/collection/works/91477

It's the 3am silent film clip of the night! Guys...this is one of my favorites. It's a German film called Destiny (1921). If you love old Gothic, dark films with deranged looking characters, this is it! Goodnight 🌙🌙🌙

Please follow the link in my bio to visit casamidnight.com and watch A Sound Apart and A Walk and Dance, the first two silent short films of the anthology. Starring the wonderful @globot2113

Vilma Koncsics was born January 9, 1901 in Nagydorog, Hungary. She worked as a stenographer while acting on the stage (her parents did not approve). One of her stage appearances impressed film director Carl Boese, & he cast her in her first film in 1919. As Vilma Bánky, she made films in Austria, Hungary & France through the early 1920s. Hollywood producer Samuel Goldwyn was enchanted after seeing her likeness on a postcard in a Budapest shop window; the Gloria Film Company, the studio for which she worked for, tried to keep her from meeting the Hollywood producer, but she sailed on the S.S. Aquitania on March 4, 1925 under contract to Goldwyn for New York. She starred opposite Ronald Colman in The Dark Angel (1925), their first of 5 films. Her performance received great reviews, & the film was a hit. Her stardom was solidified when she appeared opposite Rudolph Valentino in 2 hit films, The Eagle (1925) & Son of the Sheik (1926). Her wedding to fellow actor Rod La Rocque on June 26, 1927 was one of Hollywood's most lavish ceremonies. With the arrival of sound, Bánky was cast as a Hungarian immigrant in a silent that had 3 talking sequences added to it: This Is Heaven (1929). The film lost $200,000, and she was loaned to MGM for A Lady to Love (1930) opposite rising star Edward G. Robinson. Robinson later said she seemed overwhelmed during its production. This film was filmed in English & German and was her last Hollywood feature. Goldwyn paid her off and cancelled the 2 remaining years on her $5000 a week contract. She made her final film, The Rebel (1933), in Germany while her husband filmed S.O.S Iceberg (1933). He continued acting through 1940; the couple remained married until his death in 1969. She was an avid golfer and died without fanfare on March 18, 1991 in Los Angeles, California. Some of her large fortune was left to 2 nieces who lived in the Hungarian countryside. This film still of Bánky and Gustav von Seffertitz was from The Magic Flame (1927). #vilmabanky #gustavvonseffertitz #henryking #samuelgoldwyn #georgesbarnes #themagicflame #unitedartists #lostfilm #silentfilm #hungarianrhapsody #silentstar #classichollywood #silverscreen #fur #latergram
