If you love silent movies and care about the Midwestern roots of many talented stars of early movies, consider finding and purchasing a copy of the new American Road® magazine (Volume XIII, Number 2) at your local magazine retailer.
"Flicker Highway: American Road's Silent Movie Route," by Thomas Arthur Repp, visits various old movie houses, historic sites, and silent film events along a route from Burchard, NE, through Kansas City, Topeka, Emporia, Piqua, Chanute, Parsons and Cherryvale, KS. Film legends mentioned include Harold Lloyd, Roscoe Arbuckle, Wallace Beery, Walt Disney, Buddy Rogers, Buster Keaton, Martin and Osa Johnson, ZaSu Pitts and Louise Brooks.
One page features the Kansas Silent Film Festival (20th Anniversary free event to be held in Topeka, KS, on February 25 through 27, 2016), and another tours the Buster Keaton Museum in Piqua, KS.
Visit the American Road magazine web site and consider taking a sneak peek at the digital preview of the "Sound of Silents" issue -- then go buy a copy and read it, cover-to-cover!
