Max Linder "Le chapeau de Max" & 35mm Animation

The Unknown Cinema Channel on youtube has a variety of interesting silent film clips for fans to watch. Here are just a couple to enjoy.

Max Linder "Le chapeau de Max" - Pathé Baby
(shorten version from original 1913 film)
Max Linder was one of Charlie Chaplin's idols during his film and stage career. You can see why, in watching this film, Chaplin could have seen.




With all the chatter about today's animated films and 3D movies, always a good education to see the early animated films. Unknown Cinema have this colour clip of a 35 mm animated film made for a special production of toy projectors for children. (Follow-up: The images remind me a bit of Winsor McCay early animations.)
