YMMV / Silent Movie

  • Dancing Bear: What, a Silent Movie? In 1976? No way. Gotta see this!
  • Harsher in Hindsight: Marty Feldman's character is named Marty Eggs because Feldman's favorite food was eggs, a result of his vegetarianism. Unfortunately, nobody had warned him that eggs were not a healthy substitute, being high in cholesterol, and were a direct cause of his eventual fatal heart attack in 1982.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Now with The Artist (a silent film, made in 2011) winning Best Picture.
    • Tag Line: "The first silent film in forty years" ...and it was nearly 40 years until the next major one came out.
