Response to Original message
19. You are not alone!
I have a huge collection. The Big Parade is one of my favorite movies of all time.
Another John Gilbert film I love is Flesh and the Devil with Greta Garbo-so sexy.
I am also a fan of S. Eisentstein, the Russian director famous for Battleship Potemkin.
You listed so many great films!
