Sometimes I Crave Silence

Normally, I like working in noise. I prefer to have sound in the background. Music, voices, or the TV all work, but there are times when a switch is flipped in my head and I want silence. At times like these, I look at Netflix and find some silent movie.

Last weekend I found Wings. Score! It was with Clara Bow. Famous screen legend and a woman with feet smaller than a child’s (I saw them at Grauman’s Chinese theatre, my hands were bigger).


Bonus, it was set during World War 1. While it wasn’t much on the romance part, it had some fun dog fight scenes. And shockingly, had a topless scene with the leading lady. All in 1927. And while I enjoyed the ham acting, after nearly 2.5 hours it became a bit much and was glad that it ended and ended on a happy note.

It’ll be another month before I decide to watch another one, but I hope Paramount restores another Clara Bow adventure for me to watch.

    It wasn’t until 1934 or so that they actually implemented standards for movies. Of course those standards said no nudity at all.
