Bluebeard (1901)

An older man (bluebeard) tries to court several women but is refused several times. After bribing another gentleman with money he marries the gentleman’s daughter. Bluebeard tells his new bride she can explore his whole home except for one room. Curiosity beats the new brides will to listen to her husband and she enters the forbidden chamber while bluebeard is away. He finds out on his return and tries to kill her in his fury.

I’m quite surprised at how good these old silent films are. More great body language to tell the story and convey emotions. I give this one a high recommendation. By far, my favorite scene is when bluebeard is pinned at the end.
