Silent movies

Three silent films that each in their own way stand the test of time:

The King of Kings (DeMille, 1927). Story of Jesus. The opening scene and the resurrection scene appear in color, the rest in black and white.

Metropolis (Fritz Lang, 1927). German expressionist film, partly lost and mostly restored.

Nosferatu (F. W. Murnau, 1922). Another German expressionist film, the first (or one of the first) vampire movies. The link takes you to a beautifully remastered Blu-Ray version.
