It'd be swell if there were a book on the dark side of European silent movie - I mean "UFA Babylon" or something in this line - to radically overthrow and dismantle our usual appreciation of Cinema History. And the odds are if such a book ever exists, Maria Orska (1893, Ukraine – 1930, Austria), with her short life leaving so many mysteries behind, will occupy a chapter of her own there.

You've got me interested! Honestly the only silent movie I've ever seen is the Artist and that is really contemporary.
How did you end up with these??
@galinda: always good to see people reviving old artisanal method with newer techniques and sensibility (The Artist & Blancanieves). On YouTube you can even find an extremely funny "silent remix" version of Star Wars;) Thanks for the words and nice to meet ya'!
@timeturnerjones: a bit of patience, time and... obsession? I do love feeling "in touch" with pre-war technology and culture;)
@hansegede hahaha I totally understand :D my favorite hobbies are born out of obsession, too!
