Silent Era's The Top 300 Silent Era Films

Silent Era's The Top 300 Silent Era Films's icon

An official iCheckMovies list.

Favorited 155 times, disliked 3 times, added to 167 watchlists.

The top 300 best silent era films are based on the votes on the silentera.com website. The list is not limited to features exclusively. True silent films (like City Lights) not made in the default silent cinema timeline (1891-1929) are also accepted. Films receiving votes must still exist somewhere and in some viewable form. We limit the list to films that were produced to be silent films exclusively (synchronized music tracks are acceptible, but part-talkies and talkies that have only survived as silents are out).
