Director Michel Hazanavicius and his Favorite Silent Films

If you love The Artist, and came out of the theatre, wanting to see more silent films, a good place to start, is to see some of the films the director of The Artist really enjoys.

Best Director winner, Michel Hazanavicius, shares his Favorite Silent Films, that include City Girl, The Crowd, The Unknown, Underworld, Docks of New York, Sunrise, and more... (Great list, by the way.)

Also a special mention, that include Josef von Sternberg, Charlie Chaplin and director, Billy Wilder.

Update: A few clips of the films mentioned. These online are not the best quality.

The Crowd - Directed by King Vidor

Underworld - Directed by Josef von Sternberg
(first Sternberg film released after Chaplin didn't release Sternberg's 'A Woman of the Sea')

City Girl - Directed by F.W. Murnau (two clips)

The Unknown - Directed by Tod Browning (with Lon Chaney and Joan Crawford)

Sunrise - F.W. Murnau (with Janet Gaynor)
