The Bioscope is dedicated to the subject of early and silent cinema. It is designed to be a news and information resource on all aspects of the motion picture before sound. It covers news, publications, events, discoveries, documents, critical theory, filmmakers, performers, audiences and technology, and aims to encompass film production, distribution and exhibition in the silent era, as well as ‘pre-cinema’, chronophotography, optical toys, and related media, across the world.

A wonderful blog, with lavish resources on the history of silent film.

I love the article on the "world's oldest movie".

I love silent movies and pant for Louise Brooks just like any other red-blooded male. But, man, there's heap of silent movie sites out there. It's amazing!

Wow, cool resource. I just watched Steamboat Bill, Jr. this afternoon on TV and realized that I don't know much about silent movies other than the Metropolis and Birth of a Nation.
