- A group of bandits stage a brazen train hold-up, only to find a determined posse hot on their heels. Among the earliest existing films in American cinema - notable as the first film that presented a narrative story to tell - it depicts a group of cowboy outlaws who hold up a train and rob the passengers. They are then pursued by a Sheriff's posse. Several scenes have color included - all hand tinted. [Director: Edwin S. Porter (uncredited)] [14 min, Silent, Black and White, 1.33 : 1, USA]

 Velika pljačka voza je američki kratki crno-beli nemi film snimljen 1903. godine u režiji Edvina Si Portera. Traje 12 minuta i smatra se jednim od najvažnijih naslova u istoriji filma s obzirom da su u njemu prvi put korištene filmske tehnike paralelne montaže i snimanja na lokaciji umesto u studiju. Radnja je smeštena na Divljem Zapadu i prikazuje kako banda razbojnika pljačka voz pre nego što ih uhvati i likvidira potera koju čine dobrovoljci-kauboji. Smatra se jednim od najranijih primera vesterna u istoriji filma. Poznat je i po čuvenom završnom kadru u kome razbojnik ispaljuje hitac iz revolvera na publiku.

[Director: D.W. Griffith] [165 min, Silent, Black and White, 1.33 : 1, USA]

 Rođenje jedne nacije je slavna, ali i kontroverzna američka crno-bela nema istorijska drama iz 1915. godine koju je režirao Dejvid Levelin Grifit, a koja govori o usponu Kju Kluks Klana u SAD-u u 19. veku. Film je bio jedan od najpopularnijih i komercijalno najuspešnijih tokom nemog razdoblja, ali je još i tada bio na zlom glasu zbog pozitivnog portreta Klana i opravdavanja rasne segregacije. Film je snimljen prema romanu Čovek iz Klana ("The Clansman") kog je napisao Tomas Dikson. To je bio prvi film u istoriji kinematografije koji je trajao preko 100 minuta i koji je upotrebio tehnike skokovite montaže i krupnog plana lica, a pri svojoj premijeri 1915. godine u Los Anđelesu zvao se po naslovu iz romana, da bi kasnije bio preimenovan u "Rođenje jedne nacije". Uz to, "Nacija" nema nijednog crnoputog glumca – svi glumci su belci koji su sa šminkom maskirani da su crnci. Kontroverza filma leži u tome što se u njegovoj priči predstavlja da je rasistički Kju Kluks Klan iznikao na jugu SAD-a da bi uspostavio mir i štitio belce od "divljih" i "opasnih" crnaca. Takav stav je u to doba prevladavao kod američkih istoričara, ali se kasnije osporio. Zato je nakon premijere film izazvao proteste i kod crnaca i kod belaca, iako je Grifit izjavio da je bio iznenađen teškim kritikama i da nije znao zbog čega su se odvijale. 1916. godine Kju Kluks Klan je ponovo postao aktivan u državi, a neki su ga povezali sa pojavom filma. Stiven Minc je kritikovao film zbog njegove poruke da se crnci ne mogu integrisati u društvo i da su nasilni činovi Klana opravdani da bi se uspostavila iskrena vlada. SAD, 1861. godine. Američke porodice Stounmeni, na severu, i Kameroni, na jugu, žive u slozi. Porodica Stounmen se sastoji od oca Ostina (R. Lewis), dva sina, starijeg Fila (E. Clifton) i mlađeg Toda (R. Harron) i jedne ćerke Elsi (L. Gish). Porodica Kameron se sastoji od dve ćerke, Margarete (M. Cooper) i Flore (M. Marsh), i od tri sina, među kojima je i mladić Ben (H.B. Walthall). Najstariji Ostinov sin, Tod Stounmen, se zaljubi u Margaret, a Ben u Elsi. Ali tada izbije Američki građanski rat i sinovi se pridruže borbi između severa i juga. Crnoputi militanti, koje predvodi belac, upadaju u kuću Kamerona i napadaju žene, ali ih zaustavljaju konfederacijski vojnici dok u ratu ginu dvoje Kameronovih i mlađi Stounmenov sin. Ben biva ranjen i završi u severnjačkoj bolnici kod Elsi koja je postala medicinska sestra. Rat se završi, ali Abraham Linkoln biva ubijen u pozorištu pa Ostin Stounmen i drugi radikalni kongresmeni odluče da kazne jug i daju crncima slobodu. Ostin i njegov kolega, mulat Silas Linč (G. Siegmann), daju crncima pravo da zavladaju jugom i belcima. Ben zbog toga osnuje Kju Kluks Klan da bi vratio mir i red u to područje, iako se Elsi buni protiv toga. Crnac Gas (W. Long), bivši rob i ubica, zaprosi belkinju Floru, nakon čega ona skoči sa litice, radije birajući smrt nego da je dira crnoputi muškarac. Klan ubije Gasa, a Linč naredi da se ta organizacija iskoreni. Uz to, Linč pokušava naterati Elsi da ga oženi. Ipak, Klan osnaži i dobije nove članove, spasi kuću Kamerona od crnoputih militanata i zabrani crncima da glasaju. Fil i Margaret, i Ben i Elsi se na kraju venčavaju. Većina kritičara hvali film, ističući da je od velike važnosti za istoriju kinematografije iako priznaju da ne barata vešto sa svojim rasističkim ideologijama. Džon Gilkist je branio film od takvih optužbi: "Ovo je film koji bi se trebao koristiti za učenje protiv rasizma, i trebao bi se čuvati, a ne odbacivati. Poklonici ovog filma se često karakterišu ili kao rasisti ili tvrdokorni filmski ljubitelji koji ignorišu kontroverznu prirodu priče... Čak i ako je Grifit imao upitna verovanja, njegov talent se ne bi mogao poreći... Većina američke mračne istorije se ignoriše. To me zbunjuje. Da li mi skrivamo nacističku propagandu jer je prebolna za gledanje? Mi nikada ne bismo trebali ni pomislili da to učinimo jer gresi počinjeni tada nikada ne bi trebali biti zaboravljeni. Zašto bi onda gresi naše vlastite zemlje bili uopšte drugačiji?" Denis Švarc je rekao: "Uklešten od kontroverze zbog svog očitog rasizma, monstruoznog portreta crnaca, zagovaranja Klana, odobravanja ropstva, poremećenog romantičnog pogleda na stari Jug kao mesto gde su se majstor i rob slagali baš dobro te izjave da su crnci silovatelji belih žena. Ipak, to je svejedno jedan od najuticajnijih filmova zbog veštine na koji je menjao jezik i tehnike kinematografije". Slavni Rodžer Ebert je napisao: "Grifit i "Rođenje jedne nacije" nisu bili ništa više prosvetljeni od Amerike koja ih je stvorila. Film predstavlja u kojoj je meri beli Amerikanac mogao biti rasista, a da nije ni znao da je uopšte rasista. To vredi znati. Crnci su to već znali i iskusili, ali "Nacija" je to demonstrirala u jasnoj perspektivi. On je ogledalo svog vremena i to mu je, na žalost, jedna od njegovih vrlina. Da bismo razumeli "Naciju" moramo prvo razumeti razliku između toga šta mi donosimo filmu i šta film donosi nama. Svi filmski ljubitelji moraju pre ili kasnije doći do tačke gde vide film za ono šta jeste, a ne za ono šta oni osećaju o njemu. "Nacija" nije loš film jer zagovara zlo. Poput i filma Leni Rifenštal Trijumf volje ("Triumf des Willens") koji je veliki film iako zagovara zlo. Da razumemo kako to ostvaruje moramo naučiti mnogo o filmu, pa čak i nešto o zlu... Glavna je pretpostavka da umetnost mora služiti lepoti i istini. Ja bi rado mislio da bi to trebala, ali postoji i umetnost koja ne služi nijednom, a opet daje dubok uvid u ljudsku prirodu, pomažući nam da razumemo dobro i zlo".










PARTNER DŽIMA NUGETA
Nugget Jim's Pardner (1916)

[Frank Borzage ... Hal, Jack Farrell, Dick La Reno ... Nugget Jim Keith, Ann Little ... Madge Keith (as Anna Little)]
- A young immature man becomes aware of the drama of humiliation which overcomes a woman "won in a game of cards" (The Pitch o'Chance); a taciturn, misanthropic loner metamorphoses when coming into contact with a woman (The Pilgrim); chased from the paternal home and forced to earn his living, the son of rich parents rubs elbows with the riff-raff of society where he finds friendship and love (Nugget Jim's Pardner). Borzage speaks of the awakening of that love which travels through the mutual taming tactics between the sexes and respect for the other party. He describes a form of psychological regeneration of the lovers, each serving as a catalyst to reveal the profound nature of the other: the entire catalogue of Borzage themes is already contained here, albeit in an embryonic form. [Director: Frank Borzage] [26 min, Silent, Black and White, 1.33 : 1, USA]

 Mladi nezreli čovek (F. Borzage), sin bogatih roditelja, prinuđen je na drugačiji način života kada je nakon poslednje pijanke, oteran iz očinskog doma i prisiljen da zarađuje za život. On se udružuje sa kopačem zlata (D. La Reno) i njegovom ćerkom (A. Little), pronalazi prijateljstvo i ljubav i razvijaju srećnu porodičnu atmosferu. Film pokazuje da su ljudi, a ne novac, pravo bogatstvo.

 Debeli protagonista (tada popularni Rosko "Buca" Arbakl) igra skitnicu koji putuje skrivajući se u spremniku za vodu voza, ali ga izbacuju nakon što je otkriveno da krade ručak od putnika. Progoni ga i grupa Indijanaca koja ga namerava ubiti. Odlazi do mesta zvanog Kanjon Besnog psa (Mad Dog Gulch) gde sprečava pokušaj pljačke Divljeg Bila Hikapa (El Sent Džon) i njegove bande, nakon čega ga šerif postavlja za novog barmena saluna "Kod poslednje šanse". Baster Kiton glumi šerifa u ovom gradu, gde su borbe i ubijanja uobičajena pojava, pa se čak i u salunu, u sredini dvorane, nalazi otvor u podu za smeštaj ubijenih. Svaki put kad neko ubije nekoga, Kiton jednostavno otvara otvor i ubacuje telo. Međutim, preživeli Divlji Bil Hikap ne odustaje tako lako i kreće u osvetu. Nakon što počinje prisiljavati mladu damu "Vojske spasa" (Alis Lejk), "Buca" i šerif pokušavaju ponovo izbaciti Hikapa. Kada im se pokušaji da ga izbace, razbijanjem boca po glavi i pucanjem po leđima, pokazuju neučinkovitim, uspevaju ga pokoriti tako što mu pronalaze slabu tačku... Naš hrabri junak "Buca" kreće na otmičara i spasava "ukradenu lepotu". Ideja scenarija pripada Nataliji Tolmadž, koja je kasnije postala supruga Bastera Kitona. Snimanje se odvijalo se u kanjonu San Gabrijela, jednom od najlepših mesta u Kaliforniji. Mali grad, prikazan na filmu pravo je naselje, a ne filmski grad, kao što se često praktikovalo tokom snimanja filmova. "Na dalekom zapadu", takođe poznat pod drugim verzijama prevoda naslova: "Naš Divlji zapad", "Divlji zapad", "Debeli barmen" - kratka je komična vestern komedija sa triom glumaca, popularnih u to doba.

  Pauci je nemački crno-beli nemi avanturističi filmski serijal sniman 1919. i 1920. u režiji Frica Langa. Protagonista, čiji lik tumači Karl de Fogt, je američki plejboj i pustolov Kaj Hog koji prilikom potrage za blagom drevnih Inka dođe u sukob sa tajnim zločinačkim udruženjem "Pauka". Die Spinnen se originalno trebao sastojati od četiri epizode/poglavlja, ali su producenti odustali od projekta nakon što su snimljena samo dva. Die Spinnen se dugo vremena smatrao izgubljenim filmom dok nije pronađen početkom 1970-ih i restauriran 1978. godine uz učešće samog Frica Langa. Smatra se da je u mnogo čemu inspirisao Stivena Spilberga za njegov film Otimači izgubljenog kovčega.

 Gvozdeni konj je američki crno-beli nemi vestern film snimljen 1924. godine u režiji Džona Forda. Radnja predstavlja prikaz izgradnje američke Transkontinentalne železnice, odnosno pruge kojom su se 1869. godine spojile Zapadna i Istočna obala SAD. Protagonista je mladi istraživač koji u divljini nastoji da pronađe što kraću i pogodniju trasu, a u čemu ga neće sprečiti ni Indijanci koji su mu ubili oca. Gvozdeni konj se smatra jednim od prvih epskih vesterna u Fordovoj karijeri; snimao ga je na svojoj omiljenoj lokaciji u Monumentalnoj dolini u Juti zajedno sa hiljadama statista radi čijeg smeštaja su podignuta privremena naselja. Gvozdeni konj je, slično kao i Pokrivena kola ("The Covered Wagon") prethodne godine, značajno uticao na kasnije vesterne uspostavivši neslužbeni holivudski "kanon" Divljeg zapada.

 Skitnica (C. Chaplin) putuje na Aljasku kako bi se sa većinom drugih američkih pustolova uključio u potragu za zlatom. Nakon što ga je zadesilo nevreme, završava u zabačenoj kolibi sa tragačem i beguncem. Ipak, konačno stiže u gradić pun tragača za zlatom i i odmah se daje u traganje. Nakon što je prihvatio posao nadgledanja kolibe još jednog tragača, zaljubljuje se u usamljenu devojku iz saluna za koju greškom pomisli da se i ona zaljubila u njega. Ubrzo susreće tragača kog je upoznao ranije, a koji je zadobio amneziju pa mu Skitnica mora pomoći da pronađe svoju parcelu. Jedna od najslavnijih scena je ona u kojoj Skitnica, koji umire od gladi, namerava da pojede vlastitu čizmu; druga prikazuje trošnu kolibu kako se njiše na rubu litice, pre nego što se njeni stanari (uključujući Čaplina) uspevaju izvući. I možda i najslavnija scena iz filma je ona u kojoj Skitnica svojim imaginarnim gostima pokazuje ples dva komada hleba nabodenih na viljuške.



 












GENERAL

 General je crno-bela nema komedija iz 1927. godine u režiji Bastera Kitona koji igra i glavnu ulogu. Radnja filma se odigrava u vreme Američkog građanskog rata i zasniva se na otmici lokomotive i tri vagona, jednom stvarnom događaju iz 1862. godine. Mašinovođa Džoni Grej (B. Keaton) sam kreće u poteru za "Generalom", teretnim vozom koji su oteli Severnjaci. Upornošću i kreativnošću uspeva mu i vraćanje voza i ponovo osvajanje srca njegove devojke Anabele Li (M. Mack). 19. vek. Američki građanski rat besni, a svi se muškarci dobrovoljno javljaju da bi se prijavili vojsci i pridružili borbi. Kako bi zadivio svoju devojku Anabelu Li i njenog oca (C.H. Smith), mladi Džoni Grej, vozač lokomotive se takođe odluči da prijavi. Ali biva odbijen od odbora jer je za državu mnogo važniji kao vozač lokomotive, a Anabela mu ne veruje nego pomisli da je kukavica koja je sve to izmislila kako se ne bi prijavila u vojsku. Jednog dana špijun Severnjaka otme Džonijev omiljeni voz "General" u kome se ujedno našla i Anabela. Kako bi ih spasio, Džoni krene za njima u poteru sa drugim vozom, "Teksasom", naoružan samo sa jednim topom. Severnjaci beže jer ne znaju da je Džoni jedini u vozu koji ih progoni, nego misle da se sa njim nalazi cela vojska. To shvate tek nakon što su uzaludno bežali kilometrima od njega, na šta se ovaj sakrije u šumu. Tamo načuje za tajni plan o predstojećem napadu Severnjaka. Džoni oslobodi Anabelu i sa njom pobegne u vozu. Severnjaci ih počnu slediti sa drugim vozom. Ipak izgube, a Džoni čak i uspe da uhvati jednog generala kao taoca, za šta dobija priznanja. Baster Kiton je uvek izjavljivao da mu je ovo najdraži film kog je ikada snimio. Scena u kojoj voz propadne sa mostom na kraju filma je bio najskuplji kadar snimljen u eri nemog filma. Skoro svi kritičari su hvalili "Generala". Rodžer Ebert je u svojoj recenziji napisao: "Kitonovi filmovi imaju takvo dostojanstveno savršenstvo, takvu svežinu spajanja priče, likova i epizoda, da se odvijaju poput muzike", a Tim Dirks: "Maštovito remek-delo komedije komičara "kamenog lica", Bastera Kitona, "General" je nemi epski klasik". Stiven D. Grejdanus je zaključio: "Film počinje sa jednostavnim, briljantno suzdržanim konceptom i pretvori ga u angažovanu priču koja vas drži na ivici stolice zbog svog uzbuđenja i neverovatno koreografisanih kaskaderskih i vizuelnih šala". Bob Blum je samo potvrdio: "Jedna od najboljih komedija svih vremena. To je Kiton u najboljem izdanju". Ovaj film je nastao na vrhuncu Kitonove karijere i važi za jednu od najskupljih komedija iz perioda nemog filma. Neuspeh ovog filma i kod publike i kod kritičara značio je kraj Kitonove umetničke nezavisnosti. Tek krajem 50tih, Kitonovi nemi filmovi se ponovo ocenjuju i postižu uspeh i kod kritike i kod gledalaca. "General" među tim filmovima privlači najviše pažnje. Po ocenama kritičara radi se o jednoj od najboljih nemih komedija ikad snimljenih, prvenstveno zbog dramaturgije i ambiciozne umetničke kompozicije.

Faced with marriage to a man she does not love, Corn Blossom takes refuge in the Navajo village. Her people come to take her back, and a pitched battle between the tribes is averted only when Wing Foot arrives and tells both tribes of the new good fortune of the Indian nations. He then claims Corn Blossom as his own.

VELIKI PUT
Big Trail, The (1930) 

[John Wayne ... Breck Coleman, Marguerite Churchill ... Ruth Cameron, El Brendel ... Gus, Tully Marshall ... Zeke, Tyrone Power Sr. ... Red Flack (as Tyrone Power), David Rollins ... Dave Cameron, Frederick Burton ... Pa Bascom, Ian Keith ... Bill Thorpe, Charles Stevens ... Lopez, Louise Carver ... Gus's Mother-in-law]

Breck leads a wagon train of pioneers through Indian attack, storms, deserts, swollen rivers, down cliffs and so on while looking for the murder of a trapper and falling in love with Ruth. [Directors: Raoul Walsh and Louis R. Loeffler] [158 min, Mono, Black and White, 1.20 : 1, USA]

 Mladi traper pristane da prati karavan na Zapad kako bi pronašao ubice svog prijatelja. Klasični vestern "Veliki put" najpoznatiji je zbog činjenice da je prvu glavnu ulogu u njemu odigrao tada vrlo mladi, 23-godišnji Džon Vejn, kasnije verovatno najveća glumačka zvezda u istoriji američke kinematografije. Amerika, polovinom 19. veka. Gomila ljudi okupila se u Misuriju, kako bi se priključila karavanu koji će krenuti u osvajanje Divljeg zapada. Među ljudima željnim boljeg života zatekne se i mladi traper Brek Koleman (J. Wayne), koji traga za ubicama svog prijatelja, belcima koji su se nastojali prikazati kao Indijanci, ubivši nesrećnika da bi mu oteli kože. Kolonisti ponude Kolemanu da prati njihov konvoj na Zapad ali on odbija, sve dok među putnicima ne uoči dvojicu sumnjivaca - Reda Fleka (T. Power) i Lopeza (C. Stevens). Želeći da im bude što bliže, Koleman prihvati ponudu i sa karavanom krene na veliko putovanje... Reditelj "Velikog puta", holivudski klasik Raul Volš, dao je Vejnu ulogu na preporuku legendarnog Džona Forda. Vejnov put do zvezda ipak nije bio jednostavan - iako je markantni glumac u Volšovom filmu bio dobar, sledeću je deceniju morao protraćiti u anonimnim B produkcijama, pre nego što će ga Ford lansirati u zvezde "Poštanskom kočijom". Osim zbog Vejnove uloge, "Veliki put" je zanimljiv i zbog atraktivne produkcije, sigurne Volšove režije i za ono doba posebno atraktivnih scena poput one u kojoj konvoj prelazi reku.
