Wordless wonders

June 13, 2004

I loved the mention of Buster Keaton and the "Silent Film Gala" ("Great Stone Face Under Full Steam," May 30), although I pointedly disagree with the statement, "At his death, Keaton's classic comedies had been out of circulation for years -- a fate that befell most silent films."

What about the famed Silent Movie Theater (now open intermittently), as noted a landmark on Fairfax Avenue since 1942 as Canter's and the Farmers Market, and which has kept the memory of not only Buster Keaton alive these many years, but that of Charlie Chaplin, Harold Lloyd and lesser known stars such as Harry Langdon, Charley Chase and Ben Turpin as well?

Silents are golden!
