I did wonder about No. 3 as The Jazz Singer was famously the first film to use sound leaving audiences astounded when they actually heard Al Johnson singing.

I had that down as the answer, though, although I was leaving it until right at the end!

Hmm, yes I agree. It did appear on a list of silent movies, though maybe the title should have given me a clue...Having done a bit more research it seems the movie contains only two minutes of actual synchronized sound, the rest using story boards...

We're down to five clues so it's open to multiple guesses...

There's an animation in there and two of the questions have almost similar answers...

17. I was going to have Steamboat Willie, but it's far from silent (at least the version I checked).

Damn, sorry...yes, Disney was determined to produce a cartoon with sound after seeing 'The Jazz Singer'...obviously not the silent version :-rofl2

I'll let you into a secret. I had a different answer for 17 but then changed it after your hint!

This is what I originally had and I'm repurposing it now!

8. - Steamboat Bill, Jr.

(Even though I have no idea if a Bill Williamson exists that would satisfy the clue).

Maybe I've tried to be too cryptic.....William son = Bill Jr.?

LIfe has these -Buddhism's Life Steps of the Noble Eightfold Path - the famous Odessa Steps sequence in the film.

Tortuous, and probably way off :D
