Janet Gaynor and Charles Farrell, Street Angel, 1928
“In Naples, where prostitutes can pay their rent, Angela is sentenced to a  year in the workhouse when she tries to steal(while streetwalking) to  pay for medicine for her dying mother. She escapes and is hidden by a  circus, where she’s a natural talent and meets Gino, a painter. When she  breaks her ankle in a fall, her career ends. What can she and Gino do?  He wants to go to Naples, but the law may still be looking for her, and  Gino doesn’t know about her past. Starving artist and a beauty with a  secret: is there room in this world for them?” (IMDB)

7th Heaven, 1927
“To avoid being caught in the lie, Diane timidly offers a suggestion.  “Couldn’t I stay at your place until the police come?  Then I’d go away.”   Thoughtful and good-natured but very self-centered, Chico grows  accustomed to the girl while Diane falls deeply in love with him.  In a  touching scene, she wraps herself in the arms of his coat she’s been  mending, and dreams.  The moment when Chico and Diane finally profess  their love is tender and genuine.  She comes from the sky like an angel  in her wedding dress and Chico is overcome with emotion.  It is the  rapturous and poetic fulfillment of young love.”

Douglas Fairbanks, Sr., presenting Academy Award to Janet Gaynor for 7th Heaven, Sunrise, and Street Angel, in 1929. At this time, the award was given for a body of work over a period of time, not one performance.
Janet Gaynor:
“Naturally, I was thrilled but being the first year, the Academy  Awards had no background or tradition, and it naturally didn’t mean what  it does now. Had I known then what it would come to mean in the next  few years, I’m sure I’d have been overwhelmed. At the time, I think I  was more thrilled over meeting Douglas Fairbanks.” (via)

(I know I’m posting a ton of these — but I know if I don’t post them all now, I’ll be tempted to go back and repost more later, and I’ll forget which ones I already posted, and DAMN they are weird so I can’t resist.)

Dads A Movie Critic: Number 82 ...SUNRISE

This is my first Silent Movie on the AFI’s top 100 List and to be honest was not an easy one. Not that the movie was bad, just different. When you think of silent films, most of us gravitate towards Charlie Chaplin or Buster Keaton or even Lillian Gish. That is what made this movie so…

Janet Gaynor. She was pretty.
we watched Sunrise (starring Janet Gaynor) last night at Alamo. My Education played a score they had written for the silent film, live. It was cool.
