An old kitteh video
Dangerous Minds had a post a while back about the film Private Life of a Cat, an "intimate observation of two cats", created by Alexander Hammid in 1947.
They have since removed the post, for some inexorable reason, which is a shame because it had such a lovely soundtrack.
I was reminded of this because of a BBC story about a cache of silent film music.
It's easy to forget that these silent films actually had soundtracks, played live during the film. I was reminded of this back on '05, when I spoke at great length with Phillip York about theremins and his upcoming album Rudolph Valentino: He Sings and Other Sing About Him.
And anyone can make a playlist for a silent film. Anyone else want to take a crack at the above film? Let us know and we'll post it.
