A great honour to be asked to speak on the opening night of the Toronto silent film festival. It’s just a pity that geography was against us. But the speech was recorded ahead of time, and looked very smart, thanks to a colleague in the multimedia department generously helping me out – Andy Gallagher shot, produced, edited and did absolutely everything except sit on that blue chair. I spoke about intertitles – the often unsung heroes of silent cinema.
