UNDER CONSTRUCTION

Whether because of improper care, studio fires, or lack of preservation, it is estimated that 80 percent of films from the Silent Era are lost or incomplete.

There is nothing more upsetting to me than a lost film or a lost piece of artwork, it is simply heart-wrenching. But what really gets to me is knowing all the lost work from what I think is the most innovative and influential period in film history.

This is a list of those lost films. While there have been many films lost past 1930, this is focusing only on the lost silents of significant value.

This is still in progress, so if there's a valuable film you think should be on here, leave a comment.

Like it or hate it, P2P downloads made possible for common people backup and spread to world old but gold movies and games that companies couldn´t care less.

Very interesting list by the way. Thanks :)
