Goddamn that Mythical mister MonkeyParker!
Thanks to him, I gave a TCM primetime silent movie a few seconds of my time.
When it was over, I'd sat through all of SPeedy, starring Harold Lloyd.
Of course, it was an action-filled comedy running through the streets of Manhattan. Seeing my favourite spots as they were in 1927 or 1928 rocked my world.
Plus, very nearly modern in its tone, pace, and timbre.
