Happy New Year. Speaking of New Year's, I avoided "amateur night" as one of my favorite bartenders called it. Instead of going out, I stayed home and watched "The Phantom Carriage []" on Hulu []. The arrival of the New Year plays an important part in the film. IMAGE: "Phantom Carriage poster"[] Earlier this week, I watched another silent film, "The Unknown []" with Lon Chaney. It's kind of like a one-way, gruesomely macabre spin on "The Gift of the Magi []". It's been a few years since I watched some silents at home, but in large part my interest has been renewed by reading "American Silent Film []" by William K. Everson.
