  1. The last screencap from Lucretia Borgia gives one an idea of what Richard III would have looked like with Conrad Veidt. In fact, I suspect Olivier saw this film. Reminds me of his portrayal in his own film so very much. Thank you the quality of the photos is spectacular. I can even see a coin on the cobblestones!

  2. I can’t believe you have Lady Hamilton! Wasn’t that a lost film? Any chance of uploading a clip on yt? Would be much appreciated! Thanks so much for the screencaps too, great job, Connie looks even more handsome than usual.

  3. Beautiful photos from Lady Hamilton. What was he grasping in his hand (reclining – looking sorrowful)? How would you compare this film to the one Vivien Leigh and Laurence Olivier did? We owe you a great debt of gratitude for sharing your collection with us. Without people like you many of these classics would simply disappear. Thanks so much Monica!!!

    • He is looking at a small portrait of Emma Hamilton. I tried to make a comparison with the version from 1941, with Vivien Leigh and Laurence Olivier. Of course, the technique is different, but the silent version has certain wonderful sequences that are so well-filmed, that are even better than the sound version.

      • I had such a crush on Olivier in the later version — Why ever did they cast a man as tall as Veidt as Nelson? Nelson was even shorter than Napoleon, I’ve read.

  4. Lady Hamilton is going to be a “must see” for me, even if I do not understand the language. Russian? Wish they had English subtitles for it, but I’m still going to view it. Thanks again!

  5. I am intrigued by the photos of Lady Hamilton. Connie looks so beautiful with the wild hair and expressive eyes, bearing a tortured soul. Hope Kino gets a hold of this title so I can see it one day. Thanks again for all the wonderful treasures you are bringing to us!
