The silent film was a popular genre that was popular with many people who lived in small towns and rural areas. It was used as a means to create entertainment, and it was a way to have fun by creating images that were simple, but powerful. The style of film went through a lot of changes during the 1910’s-1920’s, but it stayed the same, which is how I feel the early silent film is so special.

The silent film had a lot of different kinds of characters, one of which was the “gangster.” A gangster was a person who was usually a black man who was not actually a gangster, but who worked for the mob or other organized crime groups. The gangster was the go-to guy for the mobsters.

In the silent film, it was often a white man who was also a gangster, usually working for the mob. This had the effect of making it that much easier for all of the black men to relate to.

Silent movies appeal to the working-class, immigrant audiences.

There are a few reasons for this. First, it provided a way for working-class audiences to be “connected” with the mob. In the early 20th century, the film industry was extremely racist: there was a huge fear of black people as actors. It was a fear that was partly based in fear of being cast as a “bad guy.” This fear of being a “bad guy” was a big factor in the popularity of the silent film.

There was a reason for this. The silent western films were considered to be less “gangster” based and less “gangster-like” than the motion picture westerns of the same era. This was especially true for the immigrants from southern and eastern Europe. The “gangster movies” of the early 20th century were considered more “American”. They had a more “proper” image and were also more melodramatic.

For a long time, Hollywood relied heavily on the silent westerns for movies that were more melodramatic and realistic. This is one of the reasons why so many of the westerns were made by Americans. But as the silent westerns became less melodramatic, more realistic, and more gangster-based in the later 20th century, Hollywood began to rely on the melodramatic and gangster movies for mainstream movies.

It’s also worth noting that the westerns were always filmed in the middle of the day, and so they tended to have a lot more sex and violence. Also, the idea of a long period of time without talking was something that was very new to Americans so it doesn’t help that they had no way to communicate with each other, so the films were also more melodramatic.
