The Silent Era
The Silent Era featured films between 1913 and 1932 that remain to be influential today. This Era can be characterized by its over acting facial and body expressions, close ups, strong scores, and primarily its lack of voiced dialogue.
Nosferatu is an unauthorized adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula. After a lawsuit between Stoker’s heirs and the producers, a court ruling ordered that all copies of the film be destroyed. All except one were. This single copy has been acclaimed as extremely influential in the film business.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N-DrKgjit4I
