    How come nobody’s ever screening “The Crowd” by King Vidor? You should try to get the DVD publishers and the movie theaters to finally get you a copy of this amazing film. Same thing for “The Wind” by Victor Sjöström. We never get to see them in France either !
    You have a wonderfull blog. Keep on posting!

      There was a screening of “The Crowd” at The BFI in London a couple of years ago. I think that “The Wind” was shown in London fairly recently.
