Unseen Silents

Films that survive according to the American Silent Feature Film Survival Database, FIAF's databases, and the websites of many different film archives, but that no one on Letterboxd has seen (and many haven't been rated on IMDB either).

There are 7 films available for viewing online, and >25 films available for purchase on DVD and/or Blu-Ray.

Incomplete films are included, but films where only a short fragment survive are not (if the film archive lists how much of the film exists). Films with synchronised sound are included, but films with spoken dialogue are not. Films may exist in any form (ex. digital, print, negative, etc.). Also, just because a film exists or is complete doesn't mean that it's well preserved or has been restored!

189 films have been removed for being seen so far. See notes for how much and where each film has been preserved. Please let me know if you have any questions or corrections!
