The theater opened on February 1, 1918, and among the stars to turn out were Mary Pickford, Charles Chaplin and Lillian Gish, as well as hundreds of eager fans who lined up for two blocks.

Classic silent western!
18 November 2003 | by (Georgia) – See all my reviews

I admit that I have only seen "The Silent Man" through the window of "One Foot in Heaven" starring Fredric March, but like his character, Rev. Spence, I enjoyed it thoroughly. Good action, strong characters, and an excellent delineation between right and wrong, something obviously lacking in today's movie fare. The print is supposed to be in good condition; how nice it would be if TCM would schedule it to be shown on their silent movie nights.
