A TRIBUTE TO GENIUS–
Was a terrific honour & priviledge to attend & have the opportunity to meet one of his grand daughters & her daughter, a great-grand daughter. Wonderful way to experience the continuity of film history with a living connection to the genius behind the making of so many iconic films. They were fun to meet & clearly elated to be there for this highly deserved tribute. He never won an Academy Award, but many who worked with him did. Yet, he is remembered today, whilst many who did received that coveted Golden Man are not. His films still fill houses & the best of them require multiple viewings, just to savour the brilliance. All thanks to those associated with the San Francisco Silent Film Festival who made this tribute to him possible! Putting this together was a fine achievement for this art form & offered many of us a chance, for the first time, to see how his genius evolved.
Here is a still from The Ring, 1927
This special treat from You Tube, collected by Morgan T. Rhys. We owe this person a debt of gratitude. This tribute covers most of his vast career. It was a joy to watch these!
