Emil Jannings in The Patriot (1928), from the 2009 Silent Movies Calendar
Want to be able to tell one day from another in 2009, see images from lost silent films, and contribute towards the preservation of silents that happily are not lost? Then purchase the Silent Movies Benefit Calendar for 2009.
This year’s calendar theme is ‘lost films’, and as well as a gorgeous image per month from the silent film of choice, you get a range of significant silent film events noted throughout the year. All proceeds after printing costs go towards a silent preservation project (last year’s calendar helped pay for the video restoration of Bardelys the Magnificent), and the calendars are priced at a modest $15 for a first copy, $12 each for further copies, plus postage.
For ordering information, go to the Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra site.
I got my copy a few weeks ago and it is so beautiful. I’ve been a happy customer since the Calendar’s inception and I have never been disappointed.
