An interesting book because James Card so thoroughly loved Cinema and shares with us his own love and experience with Silent Cinema, having collected films since the 1920s. His frustrations over the misunderstandings and underappreciations of Cinema he experienced during his life time, is apparent throughout. But the continuing recognition of Cinema he also experienced is something that warms his heart, and as he himself says, "I cannot concieve of living without showing films. Movies have been the ambrosia of my life. To offer that gift to others, sharing in their enjoyment of the movies I love, is my greatest joy." He got to know so many of the people who worked in Silents and his knowledge and experience with the Silent Cinema is what makes this an interesting read. My only complaint; the book should have had another name, more fitting.
