* Notable silents from the talkie era:
** ''Film/CityLights'' (1931) -- Creator/CharlieChaplin's first refusal to acknowledge talkies
** ''Film/{{Tabu}}'' (1931)--the last film of F.W. Murnau, about a forbidden romance between two Pacific Islanders
** ''Film/TheGoddess'' (1934) from China and ''Film/AStoryOfFloatingWeeds'' (1934) from Japan--silent film hung on for a bit longer in Asia
** ''Film/ModernTimes'' (1936) -- Creator/CharlieChaplin's second refusal to acknowledge talkies
** ''The Thief'' (1952) -- spy thriller starring Ray Milland, told without any dialogue
** ''Film/SilentMovie'' (1976) -- Creator/MelBrooks makes a tribute to silent slapstick
** ''Film/{{Koyaanisqatsi}}'' (1983) -- Kind of a documentary, but really more of a film collage portraying the state of modern civilization, told without any dialogue or narration
** ''Film/BrandUponTheBrain'' (2006) -- LeFilmArtistique from Guy Maddin, accompanied by narration from Creator/IsabellaRossellini
** ''Film/DaftPunksElectroma'' (2006) -- film about two robots trying to become human; no dialogue, lots of desert trekking
** ''Film/{{Tejut}}'' (2007) -- Hungarian film composed of multiple silent [[LeaveTheCameraRunning static Oners]].
** ''Film/TheArtist'' (2011) -- A deliberately {{Retraux}} romantic comedy about, appropriately enough, a silent movie star who struggles to adjust to talkies
** ''Film/AllIsLost'' (2013) -- Creator/RobertRedford as a sailor alone on his yacht who struggles to survive when the yacht founders. Almost completely dialogue-free.
