The silent film was not only a vigorous popular art; it was a universal language – Esperanto for the eyes.

Kevin Brownlow

Ivor Novello

Dialogue should simply be a sound among other sounds, just something that comes out of the mouths of people whose eyes tell the story in visual terms.

Alfred Hitchcock
