Able Gance dir,, just loaded with great railroad footage for that alone 7/10. From French mainline locomotives, locomotive cab interiors, yards, turntables, signals, roundhouses, inspection pits, train wrecks to spectaular scenery in the Alps and diminutive rack locomotives.

I saw quite a bit of this on the evening it aired.  Unfortunately, I missed the wreck in the beginning.  Sad  I picked up when he decides to take the child into his home right up to when his former railroad coworker comes to see him after the incident with his son.  I thought it was great.  There were a lot of great shots.  It does have a silent melodramatic plot, but it's definitely well worth the investment of time to watch it.  The sheep kept coming to get me during my Abel Gance evening.  It was definitely not for lack of interest...it was me and very frustrating.  I didn't arrange to record it.  I liked J'Accuse as well.  Again, I missed the very end.  The part I missed I had wanted to see because I was looking for possible connections to The Green Room.  The documentary wasn't bad either.  It had some interesting information.  Particularly some of the behind the scenes footage of how he did early handheld and tracking shots. 

TCM had a couple of articles running off their site.  An article on La Roue for their site and another on the DVD.  In case someone didn't see and had an interest.

There have been some pretty good silents on TCM of late.  Few weeks back I caught Michael (1924) by Dreyer.  Enjoyed it.  Missed Four Horsemen Of The Apocalypse the other day again.

I really wanted to watch this on TCM when it aired a few weeks ago, but I caught it in the middle and want to watch it from beginning to end. From what I saw it looked awesome.
