Silent eraEdit

Many films of the silent era have been lost.[1] The Library of Congress estimates 75% of all silent films are lost forever. The Silent Film era produced roughly 10,919 films and only 2,749 of those still exist in some complete form, either as an original American 35mm version, a foreign release, or as a lower-quality copy.[2]
