Title: SILENTS AND EARLY TALKIES CHAT
Classic Movie Man - July 9, 2006 05:30 PM (GMT)
This week's chat is about your fave silent stars, films and directors as well as the arrival of sound and the early years of the talkies. We will likely consider the differences between silents and talkies, the impact of the arrival of sound on various genres.
This is still really a General Chat there is no basic plan for the discussion and as ever topics like your latest classic film experiences will be welcome.
The times for this week's chat are as follows :
SATURDAY 15th JULY
2.00 p.m. UK Time
9.00 a.m. ET
8.00 a.m. CT
7.00 a.m. MT
6.00 a.m. PT
5.00 a.m. AT
The chat will last however long there is interest.
Hope to see you in the chatroom on Saturday,
Derek (Classic Movie Man)

I would like to participate in some of these chats, but 5AM for we Alaskans is just a bit too early. Any chance of moving it about 2 hours later???? :)

Maybe for the next chat I could try another time later in the day (I might be able to do an hour later?) but it is now well established that this is the summer time. True the first half hour can be quiet but we had the best turnout for awhile on Saturday. Mark maybe you can make it in before the end because we generally go on till about 4.15-4.30 p.m (7.15-7.30 a.m.) : is anyone else finding the time too early ? What would be the ideal time for the most people ? It might be time to pause and consider the future of the chats and the time. That reminds me I've yet to post this week's transcript, almost forgot. :blush:

It's cool if folks are happy with it. :) I just find it a bit too early for me *yawns* But I'll try to catch it on the tail end, as you suggest! :)

6:00 a.m. Pacific Time is way, way too early for me because I'm on a swing shift work schedule and rarely get to bed before 3:00 a.m. But if the new time works for everyone else, I'll be content to read the transcripts which Derek is so kind to post here.
