      True, but I was talking about the movie-going public of today, not
      specifically the silent film fan base here in America. The silent
      film fan base already appreciates Brooksie very much, but not the
      general movie-going public; anything that's not made for today's
      taste is held in high regard. Europeans on the other hand, not only
      view today's films, but enjoy the classics of the past, including
      silent films. That's why I posted the comment; Europeans appreciate
      silent films more than the average American does. It's a reflection
      of our times, really.
