I've watched some, and like them. They're good, but not something I watch if I have anything else available. Which is almost always.

reposting this from a locked thread:

One of the most exquisite silent movies made, (1928), the title role actress actually had a nervous breakdown after the film was finished, she gave such an intense performance.

I really just stick to silent comedies (Chaplin, Keaton, Fields, L&H etc) The incredibly creepy classic Nosferatu is high up on my list as well.
