President Coolidge Taken On The White House Lawn (1924)

In Honor of the political season finally drawing to a close!  Sometimes things around here are not so silent.  This is an early "Talkie" from Deforest Phonofilms, taken, ironically of then President Calvin Coolidge, who was known as "Silent Cal."

El Puno de hierro (1927)

Posting this in honor of Dias de los Muertos (Days of the Dead).  It is one of a few surviving Mexican silent films.
