The Roaring Twenties Project

As I start this challenge, I've only seen 30 films from the decade of the 1920s out of 3,862 released. That's an imbalance I intend to correct by watching at least 50 and perhaps as many as 100 films representative of the years 1920~29.

In rough chronological order, this list includes the 30 films I have already watched (star-rated in the Notes), plus the ones I have targeted initially (subject to availability), so it will be an accurate record of all my viewings for the decade. If you see any films missing that you would like to recommend, please let me know in the comments.
