Soviet director Dziga Vertov's experimental film grew out of his belief, shared by his editor, Elizaveta Svilova (who was also his wife), and his cinematographer, Mikhail Kaufman (also his brother), that the true goal of cinema should be to present life as it is lived. To that end, the filmmakers offer a day-in-the-life portrait of a city from dawn until dusk, though they actually shot their footage in several cities, including Moscow, Kiev, and Odessa. After an opening statement, there are no words in the film (neither voice-over nor titles), just dazzling imagery, kinetically edited - as a celebration of the modern city with a marked emphasis on its buildings and machinery. The Image Entertainment DVD edition of the film offers a musical score composed from notes left by the director, which adds greatly to the impact of the film.

Silent screen heartthrob Ramon Novarro (Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ) sounds off in his all-talking debut, a romantic musical adventure directed by Sidney Franklin. When Napoleon is exiled to Elba, loyal officer Armand de Tr?ville (Novarro) manages to elude the firing squad only to find his heart captured by Leonie de Beaufort (Dorothy Jordan), the lovely Royalist who turns him in. Making a daring escape, Armand hides with the Countess Louise (Marion Harris), unaware that Leonie is her cousin. Leonie's sudden arrival forces him to choose between love and war as he awaits the emperor's return. Featuring a two-color Technicolor® ballet sequence scored by future Oscar®-winner* Dimitri Tiomkin, plus seven new songs by Herbert Stothart and Clifford Grey, Devil-MayCare was one of M-G-M's earliest musicals, a box-office hit that ensured that Novarro's career as a leading man would continue well into the '30s.

Lively and bustling with sounds, movie screenings in Japan during the silent film era were anything but silent. Silent films in Japan were rarely silent. Screenings were accompanied by live music performed by bands of musicians and narration by katsudo benshi or motion picture narrators. Movie theaters in Japan were home to exciting live performances where the trinity of images, music and narrating conjured up the magic of cinema. The Talking Silents series from Digital Meme recreates this unique Japanese screening format.
