Carole & Co., the great site devoted to all things Carole Lombard, is hosting The Great Silent Recasting Blogathon, today through the 4th. The rules are simple enough:
[S]elect a film from 1965 onward ... then re-imagine it with silent-era actors and a director, as well as a studio and year of release. ... If an actor or actress appeared in a silent, even in bit parts, he or she is eligible as long as the fictional fllm is made at a time when he or she was actually working.
Four days, four posts—at least that's how we're playing it here at the Monkey. First up: Mary Pickford and Mary Pickford as mother and daughter in a silent era pre-make of the Disney classic Freaky Friday.
Tomorrow: Douglas Fairbanks.
